udev rules should use RUN+= rather than RUN=

The udev rules shipped by virtualbox-ose apply a RUN script on usb interfaces and devices. However the rules specify
rather than
so all other scripts added by previous rules get usurped.

This means things like my scanner (which relies on a script added by the sane udev rules) doesn't work.

The solution is to simply replace all RUN= with RUN+= in the udev rules - the rules should add the script, now set this script only.

Also, the rules should use == instead of = to match SUBSYSTEM and ACTION.
