As a long-term solution, this obviously won't work, but I think it's a _very_ good solution for now. UB _is_ expiramental at this point. It still has it's issues, and per Pete is still not to be used unless you really know what you're doing.

That makes it expiramental to me.

The next-best idea I have is to make UB print out some sort of warning
message at startup.

Neither of these ideas is very good, I'll admit.

This is decent idea. Some "Warning: UB enabled - your usb-storage devices may not work properly!" type thing on loading can't hurt.

Not the cleanest thing in the world, but look how well it worked for the unusual_devs cleanups.
