Here's the situation.
Udev-182 mandates that a devtmpfs be mounted on /dev.
Udev-mount attempts to do this, and if it can't, it fails.
Since udev-mount fails, udev has to fail.
I would rather have had >=udev-182 refuse to merge if you don't have
config_devtmpfs in your kernel, but I was informed that is not allowed
because of build hosts.
If there is another way to handle this I'm all ears.
