devscgroup: make white list more compact in some cases
Consider you added a 'c foo:bar r' permission to some cgroup and then (a bit later) 'c'foo:bar w' for it. After this you'll see the c foo:bar r c foo:bar w lines in a devices.list file. Another example - consider you added 10 'c foo:bar r' permissions to some cgroup (e.g. by mistake). After this you'll see 10 c foo:bar r lines in a list file. This is weird. This situation also has one more annoying consequence. Having many items in a white list makes permissions checking slower, sine it has to walk a longer list. The proposal is to merge permissions for items, that correspond to the same device.
