[PATCH] dbus-send peer-to-peer message bus in support of hal callouts Bash scripts

The HAL 0.5.10 Specification at 

"...callouts can (and should) communicate with the HAL daemon using a peer to 
peer D-Bus connection specified by the HALD_DIRECT_ADDR environment 
variable. ..."

To enable this in a Bash script requires a modified dbus-send command with 
support for using this environment variable's content.

I've submitted a patch to dbus that enables this support.

See: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15412
