Landed patches for multi-seat aware udisks

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/udisks/commit/?id=91106cdc7622d9674f6083dcb524407f026a36c7

and also a patch to GVfs so the session only automounts devices plugged into the seat the session is happening on

http://git.gnome.org/browse/gvfs/commit/?id=5c9ffd7bf5d08c3fe57e235d8001e0b9c23a2730

Note that you can still mount a device that is attached on another seat but that requires additional authorization so you get a polkit dialog

Seems to work surprisingly well - not bad for a quick hack on a Saturday morning.

we are getting close to an "operating system"
 
I do have one question. You're a fragile snow flake?
 
nice. it seems Nvidia cards are not hotplug. so there would be no multiseat by Nouveau or kmod-nvidia. Am i wrong?
 
I could setup multiseat on F17 just by deleting some udev file which are automatically generated. and using logintech command to nominate some hardware to a special seat. and finally writing a myudev rule. the syastem works great but on a reboot I get all things messy. so I have to go to init 3 and log in as root an execute GDM START. in this way both seats work well. after updating linux kernel it happens seldom.
