I was suddenly faced with not being able to access the bladerf as a regular user. This worked before and I can not figure out why it changed.

However, internet research turned up something related:
It seems like the "uaccess" tag is evaluated during /lib/udev/rules.d/73-seat-late.rules, according to [1]. However, the udev file is copied from the Nuand repo as 88-nuand.conf, which leads to the uaccess tag being missed. I propose having it copied to some number below 70, as suggested by [1]. I applied this fix manually, reloaded the rules and I was able to access the device again.

Steps to reproduce:
- connect bladeRF
- issue "bladerf-cli -p" to be faced with a message about insufficient permissions

This task depends upon

That is a little weird. Todo: buy a bladeRF...
