Just for the record: if you're suffering from udev breaking
horribly (#621036,#620995), a quick fix is to "rm -rf /run" and
restart udev.

I saw behaviour like #593083, where it failed to load all modules,
leading to not bringing up fbcon (radeondrmfb), no networking, and
then X locking up the whole console, requiring a hard reboot to
recover.  The latter is probably X rather than udev at fault, but
triggered by the earlier failure to initialise the hardware.  Not
sure what causes this, because at boot /run isn't writable and
udev falls back to /dev/.udev, but despite falling back correctly,
it's still broken for some reason.
