Hi snapcrafters,

Embedded systems (which are likely called IoT devices these days :)
sometime need access to peripherals via user-space device APIs, namely
i2cdev[1], spidev[2] and uio[3]. Snaps of type core and gadget should be
able to expose these interfaces to other privileged snaps.

I've opened a bug report for the feature request:

Does it make sense?
