After updating to todays -current and all ports (including hal), I can
again use the `true > /dev/da0` trick and with the second insertion of
the card hal "exports" the media. That's same like with 7-stable before.
But inserting a UFD leads to hal death.
Here's what I get from dmesg:
ugen3.3: <USB> at usbus3
umass1: <USB Flash Disk, class 0/0, rev 2.00/2.00, addr 3> on usbus3

Before the UFS plugin I had some hald-addon-storage: /dev/da0 etc.
These are all gone, just these left:
1084 ?? Ss 0:00,43 /usr/local/sbin/hald
1088 ?? I 0:00,04 hald-runner
1122 ?? I 0:00,01 hald-addon-mouse-sysmouse: /dev/ums0
1132 ?? I 0:00,01 hald-addon-mouse-sysmouse: /dev/ums1
1156 ?? S 0:00,04 hald-addon-storage: /dev/acd0
1158 ?? S 0:00,07 hald-addon-storage: /dev/acd1
1439 ?? S 0:00,01 hald-addon-storage: /dev/probe0
Now I have some essential question:
I know that inserting a Flash Card in a fixed USB card reader doesn't
inform the kernel that there's a new media, so I have to issue a write
request to get the GEOM notified. This is not easily fixable, as far as
I remember some discussion at least one year ago.
But after GEOM knows about the new labels, hal still doesn't catch them.
First I have to pull out and reinsert the card.
Is that fixable?
Do I have to use `camcontrol eject` before removing flash cards from
Any hope for my UFD-hal problem?
Especially the "xptioctl: put "device pass" in your kernel config file"
error message seems very odd to me.
