Improved udev script

The attached patch make the udev script contrib/ more robust after a frontend crash. If mythfrontend crashes and doesn't delete the /tmp/mythtv_media fifo udev will fail during the next reboot, causing device files to not be created properly.

I've changed the udev script to check for the existence of /tmp/mythtv_media and a running instance of mythfrontend. This should prevent udev from blocking during the early boot stage.
