Take 2 on [PATCH ]Re: hal doesn't recognize mounting of devices

I am still bopping around trying to cleanup a bunch of problems I have
been having with usb drives and such.  I think it is starting to get
under control.  This morning I kind of took a take 2 look on the sleep
patch used to fix the race condition between the netlink message and
the /proc/mounts update.

Attached is an updated patch that takes the is_mounted state of the
volume into account and tries to make the update as short as possible
but looping through a couple of times for the best coverage of high
latency scenarios.

Right now I am making each iteration sleep a little longer, thinking if
it is taking this long to get an update things might be really slow.
The algorithm can probably be improved upon, but I didn't want to go
nuts until I ran the whole idea by you guys.

Any feedback would be great.
