Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH] xencommons: Attempt to load blktap driver

The blktap detection code is necessarily OS-specific. I previously
discounted it because of the possibility of a race between the
completion of modprobe and the driver actually registering enough for
detection to succeed. Maybe I was too pessimistic or someone has a
bright idea?
modprobe only exits when the driver's init function completed,
at which point the driver can be expected to be in a usable state.
OK, so maybe that works then.
So what's the plan?  Options seem to be:
1. Put this on the blocker list, so it definitely gets done before release
2. Accept the patch that started this thread (or a version of it), and put "do it right" on the "nice-to-have" list. I can do it if I get a chance.
3. Someone can volunteer who can prioritize it.
