Can you elaborate on what you believe the kernel is doing
incorrectly? My first guess would be the setting of the removable
flag, but aacraid claims to be setting this to prevent partition table
caching - do you believe that to be an incorrect usage?
An explanation for it is here:
It seems like there is precedence for workarounds for older kernels in
permissions.rules, so would it be appropriate to add an override of
the default floppy rule for aacraid devices for compatability even if
this is a kernel bug?
