proposed replacement for libftdi udev rules

Description of problem:

libftdi provides /etc/udev/rules.d/99-libftdi.rules, which doesn't work as intended on recent Fedora releases (and probably EPEL7):

1)  The rules use GROUP="plugdev", but the plugdev group no longer exists.  (Regression from fix of bug #517773?)  That should be replaced with TAG+="uaccess"

2)  The rules file shouldn't be in /etc/udev/rules.d, which is for user-added rules.  It should be in /usr/lib/udev/rules.d

3)  The numeric portion of the rules file name needs to be less than 70, so it runs before /lib/udev/rules.d/70-uaccess.rules

I recommend replacing the existing file with the attached file as /lib/udev/rules.d/69-libftdi.rules.  (That will also resolve bug #1015289.)

This will be fixed in 1.1 (committed to git now) but the new version will need some coordination with the dependent packages
