Is this for USB storage devices only, or all types of USB devices?

I used 'udev' in all my embedded platforms. I did the original work
of getting dbus and hal into buildroot, but it was a royal pain. If
you are just doing USB storage devices, look at the usbmount package.
It works great and I can certainly help you with that if you hit any
