This is probably a good opportunity for us to get in sync as well.
I'm actively working on #406055 - finally got a machine setup to
reproduce it on, and am narrowing down the "breaking" changeset. fwiw,
the current behavior appears to have been in mainline for quite some
time. I contacted the upstream maintainer when I first noticed it
(last week when it was reassigned), but haven't heard back. I'll try
again when I've narrowed it down. I will know more by tomorrow
As for #404927 - I think all of the information is there to provide a
patch to udev to workaround the issue, and I think Marco is planning
to do, but haven't heard back from him. In our last conversation he
said that a patch would help. If its not fixed by the time I'm done
with #406055, I'll see if I can learn enough udev to create one
(though I don't have the hardware to test it).
I'm not actively working on any others.
