Change from V1:
* Drop pmount, and investigate udev script to fix this problem.

Hi Paul and Ross,

Thanks for your valuable suggestions, I send another solution to you
for reviewing and would you please give me your advise.

If you have a better idea, would you please share with us.

By the way, I also try another solution which is to modify util-mount
to allow normal user (non root) to invoke mount/umount to mount a
filesystem, but I think it's not good because it has security issue.


The following changes since commit a63229917a5708de2d161aba0d67168ce0da6365:

  meta-yocto-bsp: update reference board SRCREVs (2013-07-10 09:45:51 +0100)

are available in the git repository at:

  udev-extraconf: allow users in disk group to write vfat filesystem
  xuser-account: add xuser to disk group
