I tried the same thing with an IDE drive in a laptop. It's
removable and hot pluggable. I did this whith linux 2.0.13
or thereabouts. The disk had my root filesystem and swap
space on it. I pulled out the disk, got a lot of errors as
soon as I started doing disk related things. I pushed the
disk back in and everything quickly returned to normal.
Unfortunately the laptop has now moved on to another
person and I cannot repeat the test, but I would guess
your problem is more driver than VFS related.
