The ‘operating-system’ declaration should extend ‘udev-service’ with
these new rules.  This can be done by adding something like this in the
‘services’ field:

  ;; Add udev rules for MTP devices so that non-root users can access
  ;; them.
  (simple-service 'mtp udev-service-type (list libmtp))

… where ‘libsmtp’ is a package object.
