Currently there are two mediamanager backends: the hal backend and the fstab/mtab backend.
The patch only repairs and reenables the previously disabled parts of the fstab/mtab backend?
and makes it compatible with modern environments.

A proper solution maybe would require writing a third backend for dealing with udisks.
I hope you'll share the third backend to mediamanager once you write it.

The patch only solves the problem of mediamanager's detection of new disk
devices. It does not deal with other hal functionality.
