[Bug 528907] Re: unable to mount disks in dolphin / hal permission denied

Reopening for kdelibs. It occurred to me that changing this in hal
actually opens quite a large security hole: _any_ user (or malicious
script), not just admins, can now change/reformat/tamper with internal
storage devices, including the system partition, thus I'd rather leave
this disabled in hal (it has never been allowed in hal until yesterday).

Can we get the original kubuntu_06_user_disk_mounting.diff fixed, to use
kdesu again?
