The rules file should be updated to use the "uaccess" tag instead as
the other method are deprecated and will not work with logind.

TAG+="udev-acl" -> TAG+="uaccess"

ENV{ACL_MANAGE}="1" -> TAG+="uaccess"

You can also look in /lib/udev/rules.d/70-uaccess.rules to see if an
ENV variable is matching the type of device and use this instead,
this would allow compatibility with the old and the new method.


Please also note that using the udev-acl executable directly is
