this latest patch works on top of the current openct version in universe.
it is as small as it can get.
with it: plug in a usb smart card reader, works.
without it: plug in a usb smart card reader, does not work. you can work around with "sudo /etc/init.d/openct restart" but that
is very ugly, and not a good idea, if you want to login with smart cards (e.g. pam_p11 login module with opensc and openct).

the only file changed is the /lib/udev/openct_usb file used by the hotplug mechanism, only called for usb smart card readers,
so other packages cannot be affected by this fix.

the fix was necessary, because ubuntu dropped /proc/bus/usb which is
historically mounted with usbfs.

diffstat:

the changed package builds, installs and upgrades fine, does not break
packages depending on it (such as opensc).
