Description of problem:
Some external program, for example my hmount,
need to list all mountable partitions on
removable drives, skeeping fixed.
It was used key "volume.ignore" to separate
Now info for any type of partitions is nearly the same.
And output mix all partitions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect USB drive with partitions.
2. lshal > lshal.txt
3. compare output for USB partition and HDD partition.
The is no key to separate USB/HDD partitions.
Must be a key "removable".
Not only for some of parent device, but for every partition/FS.

See the hal spec (in the hal-docs package) and use sth like
storage.hotpluggable. Also, questions like these should be asked upstream.
