Thanks a lot for this, Murillo.  I have a concern that this patch only
protects us against failure of hotplugging, and not, for example, a failure of
the backend driver, but it's certainly a good step in the right direction, so
I've applied it.  I'll be working myself in this area over the next day or two
to improve this further.

Thanks again,
