You are right. I just rebooted to check, loop0 is the only node that
we don't get for free. I therefore amend my suggestion to keep the
loop module, but move everything else to udev-compat.

FWIW: I also checked what others do (I picked fedora and opensuse for
no particular reason) and found that fedora have the static loop nodes
(and nothing else) and opensuse have no static nodes at all.

Thanks for the feedback!
