I hadn't thought about NetBSD. This strongly suggests that if it is
appropriate at all it is most definitely 4.4 material since it has
non-obvious affects.

I nearly said that too but at least in the Linux scripts the presence of
the physical-device node cause the script to exit before that check.

I think this is something we can resolve one way or the other with your
hotplug script rework in 4.4, since it presumably adds new requirements
