installing udev without rebooting

Currently, after installing udev a reboot is needed to let the init
script safely mount the tmpfs over /dev. This sucks, and I'm asking for
suggestions about what I need to do to make reboot-less installation

So far, I know that I need to:
- mount --move /dev/pts and /dev/shm somewhere else
- mount the tmpfs
- move back --move /dev/pts and /dev/shm
- run udevstart
- restart gpm (for the /dev/gpmdata pipe) and syslogd (for the /dev/log

Should I just ignore races?
