Bug Fix

BZ#747965
The file permissions were set incorrectly for certain device nodes, such as the /dev/dri/controlD64 file. This problem could have been misused for DoS (Denial of Service) attacks against the current console users if the users were running X Windows. With this update, the file permissions are now set more strictly for these device nodes.
