It is true it detects a removal and newly plugged devices immediately...
However it still prints warnings and errors that it could not
synchronize SCSI cache for the disks. Then it prints regular 'rejects
I/O to dead device' warning messages and on replugging the disks puts
them to the next free sd device (e.g. sdc -> sdd).

These messages sound eval - so now the question is should I care ?
( On the other hand it did not crash the machine )

What follows is a change between to sata drives attached to port 4/5 of
the sil (ata5/ata6 here):
