Yes, I've been thinking about doing this preventing somewhere at the block
device level recently...
Like this you'd say devices dev1, dev2, dev6, dev8, dev11 are related and
should have these min and max times for accessing...
Maybe a lot of effort could be saved by just using that stuff for read-only
media (or are there any changers for writables? - I don't mean tapes, that's
completely different thing).
