Do not "hot eject" IDE devices
PCMCIA ATA/IDE Device Issues
SmartMedia fails after a few retries (Benjamin Fuhrmannek)

Use "cardctl eject" before ejecting an IDE device. Otherwise, the
kernel IDE driver gets confused and can't free the resources allocated
for the card, and eventually, you run out of resources.
