I want to know how a node is created when a hardware is connected to the system.
Information that I know :
When a hardware is connected to the system, the device name is compared with the driver name, if it matches, then probe is called.
Info i wish to know:
At which point is the node created and who is creating it(In other words, i want to know where is mknod happening)?
This one thing is bugging my mind from so many months. Please tell me programatically where is this happening. I will be very thankful.
