Instead of trying to mess with dependencies etc. you could just not use 
hotplug: just move the /etc/rc?.d/S??hotplug links 
to /etc/rc?.d/K??hotplug.

Important: don't just delete the S??hotplug links: the next update will just 
create them again.  If any K??hotplug links exist, the update will just 
leave them alone. (This is arguably broken - a search of the d-devel list 
archive with search terms like 'tri-state' and 'init script' will likely 
show the last 20 discussions of this.)
