soon as a new device is detected (doesn't matter wether the device was connected during startup or hotplugged) /sbin/hotplug can handle that. There is no need for kudzu to look at usb devices at all...

Kudzu depends on USB keyboard being present (as does the "i" key and
the fsck options stuff). Once there is a USB keyboard present then we
could proceed (or on a timeout when we conclude there is no keyboard to
be found)

Interesting, so we load the usb-stack, and wait till /dev/input/keyboard0 can be openened and then continue, with a timeout in case there is no keyb (servers)

-what about USB-storage, will hotplug handle the fsck too?

-and what about USB-network, will hotplug handle setting up the
 interface, and what about daemons who depend on the network?
