 > Your patch ignores based on /dev/blah (the device path) instead of the
 mountpoint (/usr). If you did something to change your boot sequence
 (added another drive on a higher priority USB socket) and rebooted,
 /dev/sda might become /dev/sdb. Would it be more sensible to check on the
 mountpoint, instead? (''e.g.'' something in ::!AddDevice())

 Yeah, I agree with what you've done in ticket #3666.  Going by mountpoint
 OR device path gives the best of both worlds.  However, I don't agree with
 having m_IgnoreList as a member because that means that the setting cannot
 be updated at runtime (requires media monitor to be restarted).  I guess
 you've done it for performance reasons?
