systemd and udev have been merged upstream. We will still ship them in separate
packages. However, in order to keep things simple, udev will now be part of a
package called systemd-tools. This package contains several other standalone
tools which can be used without systemd. The astute reader will note that this
also means the entirety of systemd is available in the core repository.

Please replace udev with systemd-tools when prompted. If you upgrade the linux
package at the same time, you may see an error during initramfs creation that
the udev hook is not found. After the upgrade completes, please rerun
'mkinitcpio -p linux' to ensure that a bootable image is created for the newly
installed kernel.
