> The udev runtime data moved from /dev/.udev/ to /run/udev/. The
> /run mountpoint is supposed to be a tmpfs mounted during early boot,
> available and writable to for all tools at any time during bootup,
> it replaces /var/run/, which should become a symlink some day.
> If /run does not exist, or is not writable, udev will fall back using
> /dev/.udev/.
> On systemd systems with initramfs and LVM used, packagers must
> make sure, that the systemd and initramfs versions match. The initramfs
> needs to create the /run mountpoint for udev to store the data, and
> mount this tmpfs to /run in the rootfs, so the that the udev database
> is preserved for the udev version started in the rootfs.
> The command 'udevadm info --convert-db' is gone. The udev daemon
> itself, at startup, converts any old database version if necessary.
> The systemd services files have been reorganized. The udev control
> socket is bound by systemd and passed to the started udev daemon.
> The udev-settle.service is no longer active by default. Services which
> can not handle hotplug setups properly need to actively pull it in, to
> act like a barrier. Alternatively the settle service can be unconditionally
> 'systemctl'enabled, and act like a barrier for basic.target.
> The fstab_import callout is no longer built or installed. Udev
> should not be used to mount, does not watch changes to fstab, and
> should not mirror fstab values in the udev database.
