Both plugins using the ignorelist (df and sensors) behave different in how
they use it:

The df plugin only takes the ignorelist into account when reading data while
the sensors plugin takes it into account when reading and writing data, thus
considering the ignorelist in all operating modes. While the later behavior
imho is definitely preferred it is hard to impossible to implement in some
cases, which is exactly the case in the df plugin as it allows to select
partitions based on all kinds of information that are no longer available in
the plugin's write function (e.g. filesystem type).

To make the usage of the ignorelist more straight forward to the user the
behavior of all plugins using it should conform to each other. Any ideas how
to achieve this?
