Yeah, that's tougher than it sounds, and I'd rather use the default
udev rules if possible.

I personally feel like we should just maintain a single patch.
Ideally, all that would be in that patch would be group settings to
match LFS. If there were any other changes, it would be easy to say
"Kay, what's the deal with x?" and show the diff. Then it's also easy
to track things if we make changes to better match the default udev
