I have two questions regarding hot-swap support in NetBSD:
1) When is if_delref() going to be committed?
I know at one time Jason said he had hot-swap working with his
Ethernet PC card for which he was writing a new driver (forgot what
that was). It sounds a lot like he had a working if_delref()
implementation at that time. Am I incorrect in assuming that? Or if
I'm not, what's preventing it from being committed?
2) Is anybody working on hot-swap support for USB devices?
It would be cool if my USB mouse worked when my PC resumed from
suspend, or if I could simply plug it and get it to work after booting
NetBSD without plugging it first. If there's nobody, I might offer to
help though in this area I have a lot to learn first.
