Sony Clie USB
Yeah, got all of the USB Clie devices now working! Just sent off a patch, which should show up in the next -ac kernel. Now all Palm OS USB devices are supported on Linux, it's about time :)

Now to get pilot-link to work with the Palm 4.0 USB protocol properly...

Linux Hotplug

Released a small "dietHotplug" package that implements the /sbin/hotplug functionality in a C program instead of the current linux-hotplug scripts. Huge size savings!

I did this not to replace the current scripts, which are still necessary for a system to work with different kernels, and are much easier to add new hooks and do other fun scripting things with, but because the 2.5 kernel initrd structure will need it. Think loading only the pci drivers for the devices that you have in the system at boot time. That is what dietHotplug is good for.

Embedded systems / rescue boot discs might find it handy, if they don't want to have a version of bash or awk on their system to still be able to do hotplug stuff.

And it was fun to write, which was the biggest reason for doing it :)
