The problem came up when someone asked about access times on a ssd and
it tried doing 'hdparm -t /dev/sdc' Perhaps that should have been sdc1,
but it now works.
I generally leave my systems up a long time. One of my systems has been
up for 530 days.
It seems to me that the problem you describe would be a major issue.
