devd based AUTOMOUNTER

I removed the state_lock and stat_unlock mechanisms as they
appeared to be not needed, I have shufled with 3 drives all
the time and the 'integrity' has not been lost, at it was a lot
faster, because the lock always had to wait for the 'slowest'
drive (in term of initializing the device, like USB hard drive).

I simplified the 'attach' section a lot, now each filesystem
contains only check/fsck (if possible), mount and log info.

I also simplified and improved the 'detach' section a little.

I have added an option to automatically launch the set-up
in config file manager (Yes, like in Windows ;p). 

These are options that I currently successfully use for
NAUTILUS file manager, You need to set-up all three of
them to make it work.

| FM="nautilus --browser --no-desktop"
| USER=vermaden

My whole config looks like that now:

| FM="nautilus --browser --no-desktop"
| USER=vermaden
| ENCODING=pl_PL.ISO8859-2
| CODEPAGE=cp852

Thanks, looking forward to hear some more input about it from You ;)

Thanks mate.

Good to know, try the latest new version from repo, should be even better ;)
