/dev/raw1394 is owned by root with permissions 600.  Please
add the device to /etc/security/console.perms - so that the 
permissions does not prevent new users from using IEEE 1394
devices, such as video cameras.

Note: anyone who can open raw1394 can access all devices on all connected 1394
buses unrestricted, including harddisks and other devices.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install an application for deals with IEEE 1394 device, such as kino.
2. Run kino as a regular user.
3. Try to debug it.  Kino, using libraw1394, provides no warnings.

Actual Results:  The permissions for /dev/video1394 is correctly changed, since
/dev/video* is matched in /etc/security/console.perms for v4l.

Expected Results:  Permissions to access the device.
