Please, look at patches I published at http://lists.goldelico.com/pipermail/gta04-owner/2014-February/005345.html

define "emulated SDCARD", which is useful in our case. ( It is possible other solutions, such as special partition and so )
It not depend which partition scheme is used: goldelico one partition or replicant multipartitions with initrd. 
Emulated sdcard work well in both case. You can see how it work with this build:

It is a result auto vold work. For me it is not good and I tried to exclude vold,
but did not find a way to do it correctly. However emulated sdcard cover this problem and
I did not spend a time to it.
