   I would expect that when you detect a mii link you could call the
   hotplug scripts from userspace as well, probably with a different
   (fake) interface name to get the right scripts executed.

Hmm...  This looks like a bit of a mess.  The standard hotplug scripts
are doing the wrong thing, and there's no clear model in which to
handle this situation.

Let me talk to the folks on linux-hotplug-devel and see if there's a
better way to do this.
