    Well, the unplug/replug->panic issue with USB on FreeBSD is simply
    due to the device being reattached but not being reinitialized 
    so the driver winds up getting really confused.  I fixed that in 
    but I'm sure there are a ton of other potential panic situations 
    we haven't covered.  Device Drivers just aren't written with the 
    of the hardware getting ripped out from under them in mind.
If somebody is eager enough, I'm sure that this is fixable.  Just all 
drivers which could potentially be removed (usb, sata?, firewire) would 
just have to have some kind of recovery/detach.  But that's really not 
even secondary goal, and could need a proper design first.
