Bug Description

The same description is used for both org.freedesktop.hal.storage.crypto-setup-removable and crypto-setup-fixed:
"Set up decryption for encrypted storage devices"

it should probably say:
"Set up decryption for encrypted removable storage devices"
and
"Set up decryption for encrypted internal storage devices"

See /usr/share/PolicyKit/policy/hal-storage.policy

I run latest Hardy, descriptions are user visible in Authorizations dialog.

This bug is existing in hal 0.5.10, but I just checked with git and policy/org.freedesktop.hal.storage.policy still seems to have the same descriptions.
