Assume I have a USB hard drive attached to my machine.
Is there any way to make it so that, in the event the drive is mounted and disappears (i.e. is unplugged), the system doesn't vomit on itself (i.e. kernel panic?)
I can deal with the fact that data may not be written cleanly to the drive, and that the dirty bit will stay set, and I'm contemplating playing with automount as well, but it won't help the fact that assuming I cd /backupdrive, leave the system sitting there (i.e. no data writes), and unplug the drive without a umount, the system will go kerplooey.
