they're working but USB drives are failing? Which is it?
maybe, we got a bit
off the topic. Problem are not non-working drives,
but that udevd continuosly tries to access (spin up) drives, without
disk inserted. That should'nt be so on any removable media drives.

extreme example is calling yast bootloader.. which takes several (tens?)
The actual drives are the same regardless of the interface they are
