I actually remember having seen this issue on Fedora Rawhide as well,
but it vanished after an update a few weeks ago, so it rather seems
like a "normal" bug to me. That's not really what "broken" means in
this context.

Well, yes, it's the same issue. Linus is well known for going on a
rant very quickly, but that doesn't mean that udev is completely

Yes, they obviously made a recent change that broke module loading on
some machines, but that doesn't mean the whole concept is
broken. That's just an unfair statement. Also, Kay is admitting that
there is/was a problem with udev that needs to be addressed and it
seems that they did because I cannot reproduce it anymore with udev
195 anymore.
