As stated in this original buzilla report, what I want is:
Polling frequency should be 1 Hz or less."
$ ps aux|grep hald-addon-storage
root 2719 0.0 0.0 24172 1116 ? S May31 0:01
hald-addon-storage: polling /dev/sr0 (every 2 sec)
Of course this translates into more wakeups etc. from the kernel driver.
Additionally, it would be nice for the system administrator to change
frequency easily, including setting it to zero (no polling.)
$ man hal-disable-polling
