I just took a look at swim3.c in the official kernel tree, and it looks
like it never got updated to use the macio bus system at all. So it is
a problem with swim3.ko, regardless of the current state of macio in
hotplug. Someone at one point had some updates for the swim3 driver,
but I don't remember what the status of that was.
