A simple way would be to just use the removable flag to force sync ops

Aren't specifically removable drives vulnerable to losing data because
the user forgot to unmount? I've seen *waaay* to many users just
unplug their USB stick in WinXP and Linux without prior unmounting. Of
course, this problem doesn't exist with all removable drives. The
system should take into account if the volume must be ejected with a
button (and if this signal can be intercepted).
