Ah, interesting! I tried to get the rt2x00 drivers
to work some time ago. Maybe its time to try again :)

Yes, that ivtv bug sounds like the same issue that I reported in the bcm43xx bug. Basically, udev-096 and newer enable firmware uploading using udev alone. Unfortunately, since hotplug *also* handles firmware requests with firmware.agent, they both try to fill the request and fail. Since udev is slowly replacing hotplug/coldplug functionality, imho, it's better to simply remove the firmware agent from hotplug rather than disabling the udev version by commenting out the handler.

As far as I can tell this issue isn't device specific, it should be a problem with every device that makes a firmware request.

JoseJX, thanks for explanation!
Going to kick the hotplug firmware.agent soon :)
Maybe then even the rt2x00-drivers do work :D
