All are currently broken. Whether they cause severe breakage depends
upon the individual case. Some are working apparently OK, e.g.
mdadm. Others are doing broken things to try and create device nodes
already created by udev. I can't speak for any known severe breakage--
I haven't tried using the others. All need fixing though.
