I have RELENG_7, and I don't see a -o large option supported by
mount_msdosfs. Where is this documented?

This is part of what you need to do. But it's not hald's job to
auto-mount volumes. You would need something like gnome-volume-manager
to actually tell hald to mount the volume. It also needs to be taught
what mount options are needed.

Right. FreeBSD's hal only has support for the kernel NTFS. Fuse
support is missing since I do not have NTFS volumes, and cannot test.
Patches are welcome.
