A new uevent device attribute in sysfs can be used to manually force the creation of a hotplug event for an existing device. This feature can be used to regenerate hotplug events for devices which were present when the system was booted.
This seems crazy: Why not have the "cold-plugger" talk to hotplug directly, instead of inventing a new communication channel through the kernel?
