gnome-desktop for GNOME 3.22 will depend on libudev


hwdb has its own database which it compiles to binary, so that:
1) initialisation is practically free
2) lookups are also quick, as they use a binary DB
3) we don't have to maintain our own copy of the database
4) allows model lookup rather than simply vendor lookup, when the
   database contains that information

jhbuild has been updated to reflect the new dependencies. Non-Linux
OSes should revert this patch in their 3.22 releases.

libudev was already a dependency of gnome-bluetooth, which uses it to
lookup vendor names from udev/hwdb's OUI database.
