For an example of this behavior.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2007-03-07 20:54:40 UTC
There is no resident portion of initscripts that would be able to catch these
events in a way that you could hook in.

Suggestions would be:

- modprobe.conf entries that run sysctl on module load
- udev rules that run sysctl on module registration
