glibc already checks for more than 40 packages and restarts only those
that are installed. I doubt there are that many packages that needs a
restart on udev install/upgrade.

It's true that it is not a clean solution that udev needs to keep track
of the packages that should be restarted, but this method works now
while a more sophisticated method needs someone to design & implement
