What Volumagic actually does is still a mistery for me, and I don't have
time to start reading all code now (exams), maybe later.

I looked at the mmc2 draft, and the code you linked to earlier
*seems* to do what it should do (altough I couldnt test it myself), and so
does the hal implementation. The only problem is the limited amount of
devices that actually implement the standard I guess...

I'll try to contact the authors of submount and supermount(-ng), ask them if
how they solve this and if they know some solution, one never knows :-)
