>Release: NetBSD 1.6P
System: NetBSD vash.cel.plethora.net 1.6P NetBSD 1.6P (VASH) #1: Tue Mar 11 22:30:15 CST 2003 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/VASH i386
Some USB card readers, such as the SanDisk SDDR-86 (see kern/20666),
support live removal and insertion of media. Unfortunately, NetBSD
doesn't seem to notice disk changes.
Attach a USB card reader. Then, after it's attached, insert a card.
Note that the disk doesn't get reprobed.
I'm not sure; I assume the device should be notifying us in some way,
but perhaps we're expected to probe it. I don't really know, I just
want this on the record. :)
