SubjectKernel 2.6.30 and udevd problem
[Sorry, wrong udev list in previous message.]


I have recently upgraded my kernel to 2.6.30 and I've noticed that at some
point (randomly), udevd would start using a lot of CPU time. Killing the
process and starting it with --debug option prints these messages when the
problem starts:

[22652] udev_done: seq 168515 cleanup, pid [22657], status 0, 0 seconds old

This sequence repeats ad infinitum. I have no clue what it means, so any help
is appreciated.

My system is a Dell Studio desktop with Intel graphics (G45). I run a standard
distro kernel (Arch Linux). Please ask me for any other relevant info.
