This time actually tested, but not based on the SVN repository at cross-lfs.org. 
I wrongly assumed that the contents of that repository is just unmodified 
20060515 tarball. Thus, the following changes between that tarball and the 
repository are reverted:

  * Comments in files with rules.
    - Nobody reads comments. And they belong to a separate book about kernel and 
udev, to be maintained in cross-lfs.org repository.

  * Rework of permissions:
    - Some of the changes were just wrong (e.g., assigning /dev/tty the 0622 
mode), and I will redo this work anyway, consulting the kernel source to see in 
which case dangerous ioctls (at least for non-TTY devices) are allowed.
