First a general comment on your patches: Be careful with their formatting, 
there's a couple of places where you mix tabs and spaces for their indenting 
while you probably wanted to use only spaces.

That was rather on the nitpick level, now let's move on a more fundamental 

I can't really comment on the Dolphin's patch, that'd be more Peter's role.

Now on the KFilePlacesModel patch, I think I need some more information on 
your approach. I somehow doubt that a new accessibilityChanged() signal is 
needed there, as the intent was to have dataChanged() cover that (it's 
supposed to be emitted when the accessibility of the device indeed changes). 
In turn that'd mean that on the Dolphin side connecting to dataChanged() would 
be enough as well.
