The status is that I haven't gotten a concise answer. On this. For the
time being, I think we should do the following:

a) Rebuild udev 118 with start_udev in there, for the people who keep
their systems in some goofy limbo state by only updating singular
packages at a time
b) Switch to the udev 116 way of module loading
c) Remove framebuffer module loading from the load-modules script (it
should never have been there in the first place).

Anything wrong with doing it this way?
