I don't know. I don't recall any hangs on this system with 
plugging in USB devices and manually mounting/unmounting. How can I check 
if it is USB related? How to troubleshoot?

What tools are also available for NetBSD to communicate with hald to mount 

By the way, what does NetBSD offer now for showing when a device is 
attached and detached (beyond log(9))?

Any examples of using kqueue to watch device changes? (I found some kqueue 
examples for watching a socket file descriptor and for watching files.)
