To avoid this problem, put your root disk at the start of the filter
with a "a" (like "a|/dev/sda.*|"), and have the "r"ejects after it.

Basically, when a device is found, the filter is walked from left to
write and action is taken when the first match happen. IOW, all your
scsi disks will be "r"ejected with the following filter,

["r|/dev/sd.*|", "a|/dev/sdgp.*|", "a|/dev/sdgo.*|", "a|/dev/sda.*" ]

in effect the later "a"ccepts are useless.
