Hi guys,

As a follow-up from splitting sd-hwdb out from libudev, I have just
pushed a patch splitting out the management of the hwdb from udevadm
into its own tool (systemd-hwdb).

The functionality is unchanged, and the fact that the hwdb is very
much Linux- and udev-centric, rather than a generic key-value store,
also remains.

The change was motivated by wanting to slim down udev to simplify
future changes to it, and also make life easier for people writing
udev replacements :)

Comments and testing welcome.
