For Nokia N900 (and Maemo system) we are using older udev version
(0.125), so here should be support for firmware helper.

And if some new udev version will not work, we can just revert
back to older working... No need to use super-uber-fantastic
systemd-udevd software which removing old useful code.

So looks like adding new rule file to udev for handling firmware
requests from kernel could work...
