I just got home and took the time to check which of the hal-addons was
responsible for triggering the steady increase of devbuf usage and i
found that the increase stopped as soon as i killed the
hald-addon-storage process for /dev/acd0.

/dev/acd0 is an LG CD/DVD-RW Burner in case that matters.

Any further suggestions in trying to find a fix are welcomed.
