Hotplug support for jockey

Registered by Martin Pitt on 2009-11-04

Jockey already supports printers and Wifi cards, which often come with USB and are hotplugged. Now we are going to move support for DVB card firmware to it.

Instead of just checking once, ever, we need to make Jockey hotplug aware.

pitti, 2009-11-04: Michael, I set you as approver because this will most likely end up as needing update-notifier integration.

pitti, 2009-11-25: Michael, ready for review. It's a very short spec, please let me know if you need/want more details.

pitti, 2010-01-05: Remove whiteboard work items which are already covered by linked bugs
