I included only one of thousands of identical lines from strace of udevd at
the bottom of my previous post:

poll([{fd=4, events=POLLIN}, {fd=5, events=POLLIN}, {fd=6, events=POLLIN}, {fd=7, events=POLLIN}, {fd=8, events=POLLIN}], 5, -1) = 1 ([{fd=6, revents=POLLIN}])

Let me know if that's not what you need.
