This is the most recent version of the patch.

The patch contains updates to the hotplug scripts which are required.
It was tested with udev.

Maybe you don't have the hotplug scripts from the above patch installed.
Maybe you are using hotplug and not udev (this used to work but recently
I was testing with udev).

I don't think that will work.  You can export all the ports on the hub
individually to domU instead though which I think gives you pretty much
the same function.

You can hot plug and unplug devices to domU and the domU will see them
come and go and the hotplug scripts in domU should get invoked.
