HAL is supposed to provide a connection between the kernel's knowledge

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.)

I started working on usbwatchd which is akin to ifwatchd. This uses events on /dev/usb. See USB EVENT INTERFACE in usb(4) for more information. I didn't polish it enough for release because of things like devfs, freza's work and hal in the pipeline.
