JH> Dan, was "slow" measured by how long it took to create?


JH> What was the kernel? I am running 2.6.31-rc7 -

I don't recall what kernel version I was using.  

JH> do the sysfs issues still exist?

There was, at one point, a userspace script as part of hal or udev
that was consuming a large amount of CPU while handling all the new
devices being created.  I don't remember if the numbers I posted here
were before or after that was fixed, so perhaps it's worth another
