If it crashes 7.1 because you didn't unmount before unplugging, for the time
being that's a given. There's work in progress to change all the kernel locks
involving mounting in general, so that mounted devices can be unplugged
without crashes, but this will take some time. Maybe 7.x, more likely 8.x.
If it crashes when being plugged in, then you really had a bad buy streak,
since we use several different brands, price ranges and hardware interfaces
including sdmmc(4). Only crashes we experience (livelocks actually) are with
Kodak cameras, directly into USB.
Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
and never get to the software part.
