Some drivers do their own PCI device detection rather than using the kernel driver model's MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE facility, which means that hotplug cannot detect them. The following is a list of the ones we know about. The first priority in fixing these ought to be those drivers that form part of the installer (marked {INSTALLER}) and that were listed by discover1-data (marked {DISCOVER}); items marked with both these tags represent installer regressions from Warty, and items marked with only the {DISCOVER} tag may represent regressions in the installed system. Please make sure that bugs are filed on all regressions, and link to the bugs.

Beware of drivers marked {WATCHDOG}, some of which can cause reboots without appropriate userspace support.
