As of udev-176, the Arch Linux userspace tools will no longer be able to boot
kernels without devtmpfs support.

The official Arch kernels (`kernel26-lts` and `linux`) have both had devtmpfs
support for a long time, so only people who compile their own kernels are
potentially affected by this change.

More information about the kernel options required by udev is available in the
udev [README][1].
