Allow reattaching of the kernel driver
[Copy&Paste from the mailing list]
Trouble is, this leaves the controllers in an unusable state for all the other games that can use them just fine without xboxdrv. I guess the original driver has been unloaded and needs to be re-loaded back in?
Unplugging and plugging back in should, but is ugly. This might work (haven't tried):
rmmod xpad modprobe xpad
There is also a function to reattach a kernel driver:
But I am not sure if there is an easy way to trigger that as a user, xboxdrv itself doesn't support that at the moment.
