patch based on upstream code

Description of problem:
KDE mediamanager HAL backend relies on it's own config file rather than using information obtained from HAL itself. This is wrong - HAL provides an universal way to set up mount points, options etc easy obtainable through libhal. and there is no benefits of using mediamangerrc for all of these. Moreover, mediamangerrc is incomplete - for instance, it does not correctly handle all mount options (just to mention: iocharset and codepage) which draws it almost useless when you have non-English system with non-UTF locale: there is no way to specify the correct charset and all non-Latin characters become unreadable.


Steps to reproduce:
1. setup device permission
$ cat /etc/hal/fdi/policy/removable-drive.fdi 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!-- -*- SGML -*- -->
<!-- for removable disks containing partitions -->
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
    <match key="@info.parent:storage.removable" bool="true">
      <match key="@info.parent:storage.removable.media_available" bool="true">
        <merge key="storage.policy.mount_option.ro" type="bool">true</merge>
        <merge key="volume.policy.mount_option.ro" type="bool">true</merge>

2. Start KDE and mount some media
3. Check "mount" option

Expected result
ro mount option for removable disks

Actual result:
rw mounts
