I don't think it's a good idea to try to fix QStorageInfo.

The main argument is that QStorageInfo is a monitor+info provider, but monitor should depend on a DBus in Linux; however info provider doesn't require that. Also, monitor requires internal thread on Mac. My point is that in many cases, when you doesn't need monitor itself, it's too heavy to create such a huge object just to receive volume info.

That's why i separated my solution into 2 different classes; so QtDriveInfo doesn't require external dependencies, like DBus.

Next, QStorageInfo notification doesn't work for MingGW and Windows CE.

Also QStorageInfo doesn't have internal caching.
