With the update of 173... lets bring this up again...

I am having problems in my setup: I see the /dev/ directory quite
empty. I found out that you removed the call to udevstart in S10udev,
calling it manually fixed the "emptiness problem" and /dev/ is filled
up as I expect.

Is the problem caused by my side (I am using tmpfs, and not udevfs,
and my kernel is *way* old). What is the equivalent of udevstart in
udev?
