I'm looking for people to test this small patchset for hal to look for
adverse effects.  Ideally, these patches should be a big no-op for the
majority of users, but I want to make sure there are no regressions.

If you are going to test, first save the output of lshal to have a
control with which to compare.  Then, apply the following diff to

# cd /usr/ports/sysutils/hal
# patch -p < /path/to/hal.diff
# portupgrade -fOW hal

If you do notice a problem, please provide a clear problem description
and the before and after lshal outputs.

Some users may notice an improvement in the following areas:

* Discs formatted with non-ISO, non-UDF file systems are properly
* Certain unsliced file systems (e.g. FAT, NTFS, etc.) are properly
detected (and mounted)

I'm not interested in general hal problems (though those _should_ be
reported).  I just want confirmation that this patchset does not
introduce _new_ problems.  Thanks.
