I think it was the changes in hotspot that was blocking and those aren't 
really needed IMO. A simple translation from configure naming of 
variables to the hotspot naming in should be enough 
and follows the current model, like in Omair's patch.

Omair's patch fixed this.

I still prefer Roman's configure changes however. If all that could be 
combined, I would be happy.
