With stretch being released and buster open for development, it would be
a great opportunity to get this fixed now. So please consider adding
this change in your next upload.

If you are worried about backports: /bin/udevadm is already available in
Debian jessie (oldstable) or Ubuntu trusty (14.04LTS). So it's safe to
use the /bin/udevadm path.
