In your patch you have had added /dev/galcore to "video" group, but at
same time you granted access to all users with mode 0666. In my case I
just added 0666 mode to "galcore" without group as it was done for
"mxc_vpu" and "mxc_ipu" devices, so our patches functionally

If group "video" with 0660 permissions is more correct for graphic
devices, then we must to update all of them: /dev/fb*, /dev/mxc_*,
/dev/dri/card*, because at the moment they all have 0666 permissions,
but groups are different.
