 Use DBUS to detect media insertion or removal

 This patch upgrades libmyth/mediamonitor-unix.cpp to use the DBus
 message bus to detect changes to removable media.

  Currently, to detect the insertion of USB drives and key-disks the code
 requires changes to udev configuration files, needing root permission,
 and is very Linux specific. This patch uses UDisks
 http://hal.freedesktop.org/docs/udisks/ messages which is a standard
 across many *nix systems. In addition the code is simpler, provides more
 information on the devices and most importantly needs no changes to
 system configuration. If the QT DBus module is not present the code will
 fallback to the current system.

 Closes #9519
