add the device to /etc/security/console.perms - so that the

devices, such as video cameras.

buses unrestricted, including harddisks and other devices.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install an application for deals with IEEE 1394 device, such as kino.
2. Run kino as a regular user.
3. Try to debug it.  Kino, using libraw1394, provides no warnings.

/dev/video* is matched in /etc/security/console.perms for v4l.

Expected Results:  Permissions to access the device.
