SubjectRe: udev is too slow creating devices

The problem is that since most distributions cannot make udev usage
mandatory, this would require duplicating in the init script and in the
dev.d script whatever needs to be done with the device.
Then there are the issues of scripts needing programs in /usr, which may
not be mounted when the module is loaded, or which are interactive and
need console access (think fsck).
Basically asyncronous creation of devices requires a ground up redesign
of the init scripts of a distribution. I'm not claiming that this is not
possible, but it's not going to happen soon.
