Upstream says: we should be installing a symlink , which
potentially means we don't have to make changes elsewhere or tightly
couple versions of our packages.
On a related note from the same, for restarting, the `udevadm control
--exit && udevd --daemon` process should work for restarting for us
old farts not using systemd and not restarting our boxes once a week.
I believe you could also run `udevadm trigger` if you were worried you
missed any events.
