The patch you linked in that post suggests that you have to use "udevadm 
info" instead of "udevinfo". Maybe in earlier versions of udev, udevadm 
checked the value of argv[0] and now doesn't any more, thus a symlink 
will not suffice.

Can you try adding a script called udevinfo with the contents:
exec /sbin/udevadm info $*
and see if it solves your problems? If yes, we can simply apply the 
to hal.
