fixed fdi file

After installing xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-1.0.0-3.fc11.i386, my touchpad stopped working and this message appeared in /var/log/messages:

Feb  9 21:27:20 localhost hald[2094]: error in fdi file /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/10-synaptics.fdi:6: XML or text declaration not at start of entity

This is due to the comment at the start of 10-synaptics.fdi. Apparently fdi files must start with the <?xml ...> tag.

Moving the comment after the <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> line fixes the problem.

I was hoping that I fixed it before anyone got it but obviously I was too slow :)
Fixed with 1.0.0-4, sorry about the mess.
