Re: Simultaneous loading of e100 and eepro100 by hotplug


Using kernel 2.6 on Sarge, hotplug insist on loading both modules e100
and eepro100 when at least one Intel Etherexpress PCI is present in the
machine. I feel like loading two modules for the same hardware is
generally a bad idea.

Not really. Usually, only one of them exists, and trying both makes hotplug work for both 2.4 and 2.6. A better fix would be to make it check the kernel version and load the appropriate module, but...
