SubjectRe: USB mass storage backport status?
Depending on the type of device you have and how you use it, it can either:
(1) Work properly
(2) Corrupt your data
(3) Crash the driver
(4) Crash your system

It's allready labeled EXPERIMENTAL. Perhaps it should be labeled
DANGEROUS, also, but how many labels can you put on things to warn people
off?
