Insertion Mount on state_Pending.

 e have a problem with froyo in which the MMC does not get
automatically mounted upon insertion.

This is what i could understand from the code:
in DirectVolume.cpp on the function handleDiskAdded, if the number of
partitions is not 0, the volume state gets set to "State_Pending" ,
and the VolumeDiskInserted broadcast is sent.This triggers the onEvent
method on MountService, which starts a new thread that sends the
command "volume mount"

the "volume mount" command, gets handled in Volume.cpp function
mountVol() which checks if the state is "State_Idle" if not, returns
BUSY, which in turn gets translated to code 405 "OpFailedStorageBusy"
which is what we see on MountService. This happens because we have
just set the state to "State_Pending".

If we force "State_Idle" on handleDiskAdded, instead of going into
state_Pending, it fixes our problem.

A possible fix for this is setting a flag in the onEvent method on
MountService when the disk is inserted, and starting the thread that
sends the mount command when we receive the state-change to idle, and
flag is set.

In short, we should try to mount when the state has changed to idle,
not on insertion.

Here is the patch for this:

2. About registering/deregistering for gps updates


With the LocationManager class, it seems we should register a listener
in onResume(), and deregister the listener in onPause(). If we're
using GPS though, does deregistering the listener mean that GPS
completely shuts down? I mean if the user pauses the app briefly [gps
stops], then quickly resumes, does GPS locking have to start all over
again from scratch, or is the OS somehow holding onto the signal
silently for just this case where listeners register and deregister
