Yes, I agree.  The problem cannot be solved properly (and
without possibly causing unwanted side-effects) in FreeBSD's
driver.  So this PR can be closed.

If a desktop system or application (or part thereof) decides
to use polling to detect disk changes, then that's ok (as
long as the user has a way to disable it).  But this is
beyond the scope of the FreeBSD base system.
