#1078 Allocation of gids for "hardware access groups"
Closed: accepted 11 months ago by james. Opened 11 months ago by zbyszek.

Please add soft-static allocations for groups used by udev: input, render, sgx.

The ownership of files in /dev survives the switch from initrd to the host system, so the gids should be the same to avoid wrong ownership immediately after switch-root. We have allocations for almost all groups used for device ownership, but not those three.

render and sgx are for new hardware types that has started appearing in recent years:
render nodes and secure enclaves, see https://github.com/systemd/systemd/commit/4e15a7343c, https://github.com/systemd/systemd/commit/c9c4899f44.
input was added a while ago, and I think nobody thought about adding it here:
https://github.com/systemd/systemd/commit/7ec9fb4be9, https://github.com/systemd/systemd/commit/3dff3e00e0.

Note: already allocated hardware access groups: audio,cdrom, dialout, disk, kmem, kvm, lp, tape, tty, video.
