I've got more reading to do on hotplug, but it seems to me that if you
have (e.g.) and empty bus slot, and a device appears there, then the
daemon has to pick up the interrupt for that and start the hotplug
sequence. In your case, it seems to me a program could run and "make the
card exist" and then start the hotplug sequence. But I doubt I know what
I'm talking about.
