This patch modifies the installation for ipod and sansa bootloaders to not scan for a device (and use the one found) but use the one pointed to by the mountpoint. This is necessary if we add support for choosing from multiple detected devices (FS#9485) as otherwise having two ipods / sansas would make the bootloader installation fail. Furthermore, users should be able to expect that the correct player gets used if they chose from a list upon detection.
Issues of the current implementation:
- w32 only. I'm going to add linux support in a later version.
- if f.e. a sansa is connected with a wrong mountpoint set the bootloader gets first downloaded before an error (i.e. mountpoint not poining to the correct player) is detected. Not sure if this is that much of an issue as the only drawback is the additional download.
