As per the Kconfig help entry, any version of udev released before 2006
will probably have problems with the new config option. So follow the
text and enable the option if you are running an old version of udev and
you should be fine.

No more need to upgrade udev if you don't want to, everything should
work as-is unless you do not want it to.

I think the CHANGES file shows the version of udev that will work
properly with this change, but I need to go verify that.
