As I said, it's just what I hear — perhaps it's the usual retrograde
whining. I should probably just try udisks-glue, the only issue I see
is that it depends on UDisks 1.

Note that the script I mentioned immediately forks, and only updates
autofs mapping entries — it doesn't actually mount anything.

Perhaps I wasn't expressing myself clearly — the point was to show
that mdev is not needed. I used mdev in initramfs previously, but now
rely on devtmpfs and the one-liner /sbin/hotplug for loading modules.
Incidentally, turning off mdev resulted in Busybox executable size
change of precisely 0, which I guess shows how much mdev actually

Please don't — it's useful in Busybox-based initramfs. Dracut-like
inclusion of udev and its dependencies DAG is usually unnecessary and
