If the underlying system can't provide HAL with asynchronous events 
regarding change of device state (such as media insertion and removal), 
it resorts to polling such device. That's what hald-addon-storage does: 
every time media is inserted or removed or eject button is pressed, it 
nudges the main HAL daemon. There is one hald-addon-storage instance per 
device with "storage.media_check_enabled" = "true".
