CONFIG_HOTPLUG has nothing to do with it.

Yes read in <http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/docs/howto/other-formats/html_single/SCSI-2.4-HOWTO.html#mlproc>

that in Linux 2.4: "The SCSI subsystem does not support hot-plugging of SCSI
devices ..."


Well I have no experience with hpux and those new 'hotplugable' devices but
at least on Sun it doesn't mean that you can remove device(s) like this without
taking care to power it off by software!!!
