It comes and goes on my servers. I bring online new storage devices,
and change their sizes when I decide I want more space. Sometimes I
bring online a lot of temporary space and then take it away when I'm
done. These are production servers with Fibre Channel attached storage
and this is not a unique use case. Having to manually fiddle with
rescan-scsi-bus etc to see the new devices is a PITA and I welcome any
attempt to make this a more seamless process.

Don't assume dynamic device detection is only about personal machines or
USB. It's useful in a much wider context.


We are talking one charming motherf**king pig.
