async with udev

How do I make udev to mount my USB drive "async"?

It's an external USB drive and I understand "sync" is a good default, but the performance isn't very exciting in this mode and the device is permanently attached anyway.

Any hints welcome.

I'm doing this in Fedora, so the file path may not be the same...

Go into /usr/share/hal/90defaultpolicy and open storage-policy.fdi in the edotor of your choice.
Look for a stanza that looks like
          <match key="volume.size" compare_lt="2147483648">
	    <match key="@block.storage_device:storage.hotpluggable" bool="true">
	      <merge key="volume.policy.mount_option.sync" type="bool">true</merge>
	      <merge key="volume.policy.mount_option.noatime" type="bool">true</merge>
	    <match key="@block.storage_device:storage.removable" bool="true">
	      <merge key="volume.policy.mount_option.sync" type="bool">true</merge>
	      <merge key="volume.policy.mount_option.noatime" type="bool">true</merge>
and change the .sync values to false.
