Re: gnome-desktop for GNOME 3.22 will depend on libudev

hwdb has its own database which it compiles to binary, so that:

4) allows model lookup rather than simply vendor lookup, when the

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.

And this broke building applications in Flatpak. The udev API isn't
stable, so cannot be used in sandboxed applications where the system
version of the daemon might not match our expectations.

This commit along with changes in gnome-nightly-apps should get us over
the hurdle in the short-term.

    pnp-ids: Add --disable-udev command-line argument
    This will allow building gnome-desktop in environments where libudev
    isn't available (such as flatpak's Sdk) until we have a thumbnailing API
    living in the platform API (likely GLib or GTK+).
