Forward-ports in kde-workspace

Here is a list of commits in kde-workspace:4.6 that seem to be missing
a forward-port into master. I don't claim correctness of this list;
please let me know if there's something wrong in it.

I'm posting this so that devs do their forgotten forward-ports before
the 4.6->master git merge is attempted. Which doesn't mean I'm asking
you to do anything; this is raw information, take your own conclusions
and decisions from it :)

There are some commits where it's obvious why they *shouldn't* be in
master, but I'm including them for completeness (as there's also many
where there may be an obvious reason but not obvious to me).

    Treat remote NFS/CIFS shares as non-removable devices
    This is just a hack valid for the 4.6 timeframe, and should *not*
be forwardported
    to trunk.
