Athough I agree that there are issues with async userspace, I don't 
understand why you are talking about async userspace in this context.

The issue I'm talking about (lots of error messages while udev init.d 
script is running) happens in the current sequential boot procedure.
It is caused by udev trying to resolve groups such as "fuse", that (a) are 
definitly 'system' groups (so they likely should be either resolved 
locally, or not resolved at all), and (b) may not be available 
in /etc/groups if some [optional] packages are not installed.
