A driver is never done, this is hotplug. I can plug in USB audio any time I

initscripting) is to tell the userspace "the initial device enumeration
is done". In fact in most cases this would be in the standard pci_foo code.

Nobody in the kernel world ever thought of udev as a "solely dynamic" world
to my knowledge but as a partially dynamic one.

Propose a "Carrier grade udev" project ;)
