Almost! Can't use underscores in .policy files, there's no such thing!
Yes, we're very strict! Anyway, I've committed this patch


But had to add a kludge back to hal because the libmtp fdi file is using
a deprecated property that was removed. 


So now it works fine.

Any chance you can update the libmtp fdi file generator to use
info.subsystem instead of info.bus? And if you see the libgphoto2 ask
them too please! Thanks!
