Strictly speaking setupcon means 'setup console' and this doesn't 
suppose that udevadm has to be called.  Because of this I am lowering 
the severity to 'minor'.  On the other hand I agree that this can be 

The reason I am not going to fix this is that I am not well acquanted 
with the udev/hal system.  I understand that the patch to fix the bug is 
very simple but sometimes to maintain a one-line code and to fix all 
problems that could arise in the future requires more than simply 
understanding what this one-line command does.  There is no way back - 
if this functionality is added to setupcon the users will expect it so 
it would be impossible to revert the change.  Correspondingly I am 
adding a 'help' tag to this bug and leaving for some other developer to 
fix it.
