I have a USB card reader which has 5 different slots for various media.
If I plug in the card reader and then later insert a CF card, the CF
card slot's device does not have the partition device created when using
udev (I have to insert the CF card and then plug in the card reader).  I
believe this software is created specifically for that purpose - for
card readers which do not report card insertion / removal to the kernel.
