This is normal. Afaik this was done to speed up processsing of (new) devices.
In previous versions, udevd spawned a new udev process everytime when a (new)
device was processed.

This processes you see now are called "workers" and the main udevd process hands
over the processing of devices to them instead of spawning new ones.
I think the NEWS file has some references to that.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
