Any way to reset udev? (in a way that doesn't nuke the system and 
require a reboot anyway)

I'm still trying to find a way to make that ghost disk disappear. I am 
fairly sure a reboot will sort it but solving the problem without 
understanding it is something I only do when there is a good reason, 
like some needed service is compromised or something. Not the case here.
