[argyllcms] Aware of hardware devices

gnome-color-manager uses argyllcms to generate display profiles[1]. At
the moment there is a big fat "Calibrate" button in the GUI, that just
produces a cryptic error if the calibration device is not plugged in.

The attached patch (for comments) adds a ARGYLL_CALIBRATION_DEVICE
udev string for supported devices, and would allow gnome-color-manager
to make the calibrate button insensitive when there is not supported
hardware installed, and sensitive when the hardware is inserted. The
alternative is for gnome-color manager to keep a list of the VIDs and
PIDs itself, which isn't ideal as then the lists would get out of sync
when the list of supported devices grows.

Thanks, feedback welcome.
