devcgroup: fix odd behaviour when writing 'a' to devices.allow
# cat /devcg/devices.list a *:* rwm # echo a > devices.allow # cat /devcg/devices.list a *:* rwm a 0:0 rwm This is odd and maybe confusing. With this patch, writing 'a' to devices.allow will add 'a *:* rwm' to the whitelist. Also a few fixes and updates to the document.
