    So if I understand correctly, capifs was deprecated and is soon be
    removed because udev was able to replace it given a set of rules, then
    after the deprecation was done the rules were deliberately removed
    from udev. And that's supposed to be a kernel issue?

    Sounds... typical, actually.
