[opensuse-packaging] HAL: cleanup of deprecated keys/properties

with the next HAL package (v0.5.12) for STABLE/Factory (including the next
beta) some keys/properties get removed from HAL because they are deprecated
and marked since more than 6 months in the SPEC to get removed on 2008-05-03.

The effected keys/properties are:
- portable_audio_player.access_method
- portable_audio_player.type

Both keys are replaced by:
- portable_audio_player.access_method.[drivers, protocols]

Check the HAL spec for more information.

Please check your HAL consuming applications (incl. may shipped FDI files) and
updated them if needed to prevent bugreports/problems with the new HAL
