Yea, I'm 100% positive - the problem is that uevents for "struct
class_device" don't include the PHYSDEV* variables. This makes it
impossible for udev to reorder the events, e.g. wait for the device that
PHYSDEVPATH that the class device specifies. As a result you sometimes
get to process the event for an input device *before* the physical
device (e.g. USB interface) have been processed. SCSI generic devices
are affected in a similar way.
ok, kernel-2_6_21-1_3222_fc8 is building which should have it tomorrow.
I've no objection to including it (as long as it doesn't have additional
dependancies). Chuck? anyone else?
