In all honesty, what would the average system administrator (let alone
developer) do based on more information?
"If we send out code xxx to card yyy to drive zzz, which is often done as
part of operation aaa, then data loss may occur if the last write on the
SSD indicated a faulty overused section of the SSD and it had to activate
a new section of chip. This code, based on the Gandalf corollary of the
Feanor theorem, should correct that issue."

Most admins would be happy with:
"We have found an issue that may occur over time and it is strongly
recommended that you apply this fix ASAP and IPL to activate it. Don't
buy that "if it ain't broke don't fix it" bullshirt since you just may not
have had an occurrence yet, of which we predict the odds are 99% that you
will over time. Length of time will vary depending on write operations."
