That works.

My approach in the patch that started the discussion was more along the
lines of "least common denominator" - if any target needs hdparm then all
targets get hdparm - but that is I suppose ultimately not the best solution
for minimalism reasons.

BTW I noticed this when using ArchLinux ARM and OpenWrt on the same
device an the hard drive would not spin down on OpenWrt and finally
hashed out that ArchLinux was setting the spin down time using

I have a small rc script to do the same on OpenWrt as well that I will
add once we hashed out the overall structure for NAS type devices.
