Switching libsane's udev rules to using ACLs for USB devices, so as to
finally work around the issue of multi-function devices, which raised
its ugly head again after changes in udev's default rules.
As for requiring ACL support for /dev, this is already needed by
ConsoleKit for a default desktop install.
udev uses tmpfs for /dev and tmpfs has ACL support enabled in the distro
kernels already. Seeing how it isn't reasonable anymore to run a system
without udev, ACL support for /dev is a given in the general case.
Moreover, it'd be consistent with having chmod and chown in /bin.
