USB camera always enabled

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)
I have USB2 (UVC-compatible) webcam connected to my host that has activity led indicating whether camera is enabled.
Whenever I start virtual machine my camera's led turns on and stays that way until VM shutdown. This happens even if I completely disable USB support in VM configuration.
I can still use camera in host system but it's really annoying and has security/privacy implications - I wouldn't know if some malware was observing me ;)
At the very least USB devices should not be molested if USB is disabled. It would be even nicer if that was true with USB enabled - for every device that is not attached to any running guest.
