Issue 514: [Neo900] Hall switch for detecting back cover

Reported by Joerg Reisenweber, Nov 20, 2013

N900-schematics N5210 "uSD card hot-swap detection sensor"

seems according to (Nokia 
5200 schematics) we might expect to see a "HED55XXU12" 
(N2400) there.
Supposed to be SOT-3 or SOT-23

datasheet unobtainium

We're free to pick any convenient alternative from
t-Magnetic-Sensors/_/N-6giy0?No=25&P=1z0z7pt et al
given the magnetic field sensing properties and formfactor meet our

design purpose of magnetic sensor to detect back cover removed:
not only to faciliate uSD swap like on N900, but also prepare device 
for battery hotswap, by swirching off backlight, stopping data 
transfer via WWAN, charging "UPS" buffer capacitor
