I'm glad to hear it's working for you.  This is unfortunately a known
problem without much of an out of the box resolution.  Probably a line
in the release notes would be good to help people who might stumble
across this.  In the meantime, I am going to reduce the severity of the
bug to normal, as it has a known workaround, and it is a known side
effect of asynchronous device probing that will not be changed in the
upstream kernel.

Take care,
