Update from OpenIndiana oi151a6 to oi151a7

Yesterday the team around OpenIndiana.org has released the
prestable 7 oi151a7.

Today I updated without problems. The NVidia driver was a 295 release,
which I changed to the latest 304.51.

I still have problems with SDHC cards and the cardreader.
Since oi151a6 the automatic mount in gnome fails with the
messagebox, that it can't mount.

A manual mount with pfexec mount -F pcfs /dev/dsk/c2t0d0p0:1 /mnt works.

Here's the upate log:
