Default do PnP devices use user mode drivers?


in this article

from the answer to the question
What are the constraints on user-mode drivers?

i get the feeling that all hardware that require interrupts require a kernel mode driver, hence all hardware on the PCMCIA bus would require a kernel mode driver, hence all Pnp devices require a kernel mode driver.

however scrolling down, i came across the folwloing answer to the question
What is the difference between a user-mode driver and an application?

and from it i understand that PnP devices can use user mode drivers, correct?
