tpowa is already working on 2.6.32 and your problem with KMS is not a 
problem in mkinitcpio.
About udev - we have a problem with cryptsetup that will cause 
regressions if we move the current udev+device-mapper to core, and I 
still have no solution for those.

That said, releasing a new mkinitcpio with a bugfix is not possible if 
commits are being pushed that obviously break existing setups without 
any reasonable upgrade path. The reason for that breakage is that some 
people think sh-compatibility is more important than anything else:
And then you also add a warning that is printed every time mkinitcpio is 
run. So now before I can release anything, I have to clean up other 
people's commits first.
