[Pkg-auth-maintainers] udev: Include udev rules for more U2F devices

Hi. The udev file is needed by all applications using u2f, and not all uses libu2f-host.  For example, chromium needs the udev rule to work. It just needs to be present on all systems for u2f to work. Alternatively, every package that wants to talk to a u2f device needs to ship the file which doesn't scale very well. Is there any history regarding other udev files for hardware with similar properties?
