I was thinking about not scanning an already scanned device.
If the device has been unplugged, it should be removed,
and re-added when plugged, instead of trying to update it.
I understand this is another kind of change and deserves more time
to think about the right design. That's why I will accept the v3
of this patch.
Anyway the road to get hotplug handled right is long :)
