Without having the time right now to look through sysd, does it send all the same cleanup signals when it's asked explicitly to unmount the card, or only when it's shutting down?
The changes required to sysd are pretty simple. I wouldn't modify any of the existing functions, but clone one that will only be called by the new userShutdown. That way any existing code that is using sysd shouldn't be effected.
