I'm not using them on purpose, but it's caused by a probing clone() in
libvirt's lxcContainerAavilable, followed by a "ip link set lo netns -1"
in lxcCheckNetNsSupport. It can be recreated with just:

#include <unistd.h>
#include <sched.h>
static int dummy(void *argv) { _exit(0); }
main() {
char stack[4096];
clone(dummy, stack+4096, CLONE_NEWNET, NULL);
wait();
system("ip link set lo netns -1");
}
Running that program causes "udevadm settle" to stop working due to
the filtered events.
