i have created a branch in my staging tree [1] that removes mountd in
favour of blockd. blockd is part of the fstools package and uses the
block tool and /etc/config/fstab as a backend.

blockd is an optional daemon and when installed will provide these
features in addition to what block-mount already does :

* autofs4 support
* ubus call block info - for status info on attached block devices
* reload_config support - mount move or change from named to autofs to
anon mounts

What else should we add :

* support for eject buttons and LEDs
* ubus notifications upon state changes
* ubus interface for mount/unmount
* anything else that folks might like to see being added ?

Please help test the new daemon.
