Problem with built-in USB memory card reader

Everything works perfect if the system is started with a memory card
inserted into the reader.

The problem arises when the system is started without the memory card
inserted.  Since the reader is built-in (permanently attached to the
motherboard), it is detected by the system at startup and no umass
device is created.  Inserting a memory card at some later time has no
visible effect whatsoever.

I'm using the 5.4 release.  Is there a solution for this?
