There is no real conflict: either use hotplug or udev (which can do the 
hotplug stuff, too).

The problem is rather with changed behaviour: udev does not contain all the 
device files. This changes the module loading behaviour, 
e.g. /etc/init.d/setserial will not automatically load the serial port 

Work-around: load the module with /etc/modules.

By the way: since when does xorg absolutely rely on kernel modules?
