Definitely kernel ... udev will only remove the devices when it receives a
ACTION=remove uevent from the kernel.  Windows actually "removes" devices when
ejected, and powers them down -- I'm sure I saw a kernel patch to make Linux
behave the same way, as some devices like iPods really don't take kindly to
being unplugged when the power is on
