I'm seeing several bug reports and forum threads about this, so I
thought I'd ask your opinion about doing a news item:
Udev delay during boot
udev-176 (and later) no longer work around a certain class of kernel
bugs. If you are using an affected driver it means that you will
encounter a 30 second delay on boot. It seems that mostly wireless
drivers are affected by this. The netdev guys are aware of the issue,
and are working on a solution.
systemd users are largely unaffected by this issue.
: the bug still occurs, and the 30-second timeout still happens,
but the rest of userspace will boot in parallell, unlike in
initscripts where the rest of userspace will wait.
