    after you get a recent enough udev you probably need to recreate a new
    initrd (and pray that you don't need a newer mkinitrd to match the newer
    udev...) since udev is also put inside the initrd.

    To be fair, enterprise linux distributions aren't actually designed to
    run brand spanking new kernels, and the vendors aren't likely to update
    userland tools to make newer kernels work either (unlike, say,
    distributions like Fedora Core or SuSE or .. or .. or .. )
