One problem that would need to be resolved before that could happen
is that the OpenWRT system currently relies on devfs, and so they have
put back a minimal form of that code rather than move to udev. I do
not know what effect this has on the rest of the patches but you might
find that it gets a whole lot easier to migrate once they make the move
(if they make the move, as they also have 2.4 kernels and want to keep
the rest of the system the same for both) to udev.
