The /home directory is mounted from an external USB-C NVMe drive
because the internal storage is quite limited. Note that it does
run at USB2 speeds because there is not kernel support *yet* for
USB3. This will come in due course.

Yesterday we noticed some errors, the type that normally appear
when a cable is loose or connection is bad. Rebooting fixed it.

Then again today, the device was reset but with no other errors:

[ 2542.731446] usb 3-1: reset high-speed USB device number 2
using xhci-hcd

It did not come back online after a reboot.

I'll drive over there soon to reseat the cable and hopefully it
comes back up after that.

For now, please be patient with the machine as it's running
bleeding-edge code, some of which was written this week.
