If I run hddtemp as a daemon but then hotswap a drive, hddtemp doesn't notice, and logs "Bad file descriptor".

For example, it was logging temperatures correctly for /dev/sdd until I removed that drive. While it was missing, hddtemp logged "Bad file descriptor" for it. (Arguably it should now log nothing for /dev/sdd.)

Then even after a new drive was added and given /dev/sdd, hddtemp  is still logging "Bad file descriptor" for /dev/sdd.

If it comes across a bad file descriptor it should reevaluate.

Otherwise I have to remember to restart the daemon after hotswapping drives.
