This is actually a known bug, but I should fix it to avoid surprising people. The conversion starts by finding all the device ids mentioned in config files. Any file that does not mention an IDE/SCSI device name does not need to be updated. However, the udev config file uses device model paths and not device ids, so as a special case it is currently always marked for conversion. > I've attached the relevant file for reference. > > Other than that, I didn't notice any breakage or strange behaviour.
