	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.  :)
