diff -u please...

You still don't seem to have a floppy... and you've done a lot more than 
add/remove udev.  You're using different options for the network interface, 
you've changed real-time clock drivers and DMA options on your HDs (none of 
which are likely fatal, but it looks like you're using a different kernel).  
The good news is you gained 4.09 Bogomips :-)

I don't think, but "mknod" can be used to create some of these if you have 

derek@iago:/usr/src/linux$ ls -l /dev/input/
