[arch-general] [PATCH] [initscripts] drop custom support for persistent net/cd symlinks

Hi all,

As of the next udev release, /dev/.udev has moved to /dev/.run/udev. So, since we have to update this anyway, I thought this was a good opportunity to review our persistent net/cd rules functionality.

If I understand correctly, udev allready has support for creating persistent net/cd symlinks (that we disable by default), and no other distro does anything beyond that. Furthermore, the udev devs explicitly say that /dev/.udev should only be used by udev itself.

It is therefore not clear to me why we need this at all. The attached patch removes it alltogether.

Any comments?
