taped could not access /dev SCSI devices

The clean solution would have been to add cta to the `tape` group.
Unfortunately this does not work as groups are not refreshed within a bash process.
Therefore the short answer was to `chmod 666` SCSI devices (`sg` `st` and `nst`).
Now everything works fine in buildtree but this step could be improved.
