I think those are read-only values from the kernel.  I don't think 
there's anything you can do to add the "eject" capability to the eSATA 
drives.  As long as they're properly unmounted and your cables are 
hot-swap safe (the ground leads need to be longer than all of the 
others) you should be able to yank the drives.
