Since when? Upstream recommends that you stop udevd before upgrading
udev (and you can watch its inotify watches freak out in the log file
when you don't). killall might not be the cleanest way with 'udevadm
control --exit' around nowadays, but I can't see why it wouldn't be
supported to restart udev.
