It's also waiting on a new version of makedev, which is frozen and includes
lots of changes not related to the udev change, and has only been in
unstable for two days.  Cc:ed to the maintainer (Bdale) as well, for
comments on whether makedev should be pushed through.

It would be good if someone could do a concrete d-i sid test with this
version of udev, to confirm that it does solve the problems in question.

I suspect so, but I think it's best to let makedev age a little more before
pushing it in.  Joey, is there any d-i deadline I need to worry about for
this?  I assume that if we have a known good fix, it's not a problem for it
to not be in the d-i rc3 release, as long as it gets on the official CD
builds for sarge?
