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.
