commit: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=ca520507fc15a8213334a76339a3e6d567e91ea0
branch: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

The S10udev startup script did useless things such as mounting sysfs,
mounting a tmpfs filesystem in /dev/, etc. Those things are already
done during in the default inittab.
