Problem Description:

The MemoryStick is not recognised when inseted.
After boot, (w/o Memorystick in the Slot) I have only the /dev/sda Device.
(Booting with Stick in the Slot I also have the /dev/sda1 )
When I insert the Stick in the slot nothing happens. I still don't have the
/dev/sda1, as expected. 
I tried to unload and reload the sd_mod , and /dev/sda1 appears.
also a 'touch /dev/sda' reveals the /dev/sda1 
Same thing happens when ejecting the Stick: the /dev/sda1 stays availeble (but
empty) , but 'touch /dev/sda' removes the /dev/sda1 .
/dev/sda seems to be always there.



Steps to reproduce:
1. reboot (w/ or w/o stick)
2. test if /desv/sda1 exists
3. reload the modules or accessing the device corrects the status.

Is this issue still present in recent 2.6 kernels?
Comment 2 Adrian Bunk 2006-07-10 13:20:27 UTC
Please reopen this bug if it's still present in kernel 2.6.17.
