When you insert the usb ethernet device, some extraneous messages appear on the
kernel: usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x50d/0x121) is not claimed by any active
And if there is an ifcfg-eth? file for the device, you also get:
kernel: pegasus.c: eth2: link NOT established (0x7849) - check the cable.
even though the connection does work.
The device is a Belkin F5D5050.
Sure, I can take that. But I do not see how this can be helped,
The first message appears when the device is connected, and
before the hotplug had a chance to work and load pegasus driver.
If we block khubd until the hotplug finishes, it's going to
give us a lot of grief with hanging.
Second one is annoying, because it seems like a pegasus's fault.
Surely it should be capable of waiting a little before complaining
about the missing link beat. It can be changed, but I'd rather not.
Too easy to fix the requestor's issue, but blow up it for someone
else (like with USB serial last time).

fwiw, this seems to be fixed in FC1
