[PATCH] Apply ACLs even if acl list reading failed

List of applied ACLs can get corrupted, and that prevents hal-acl-tool
from ever touching it again and fixing. Trivial fix attached.

If that was due to a crash, etc, it is not valid any longer anyways. In
that case probably it would make sense to relocate /var/lib/hal/acl-list
into /var/run/hal, and let it be removed by operating system startup
