Re: Question IRQ changes each time card it ejected (Tony Sciortino)

Do not hot eject IDE devices without unmounting the filesystems!  That
is bad, bad, bad!  The least of your problems is that the resources
used by the card are not freed correctly by the IDE driver; you are
also risking a kernel panic and/or data corruption every time you do

You should always do a "cardctl eject" prior to ejecting an IDE
