I think gregkh is already on record as saying that the pci-ids file is going
to go into /usr and stay there.  The errors I got weren't from that, though,
it was the init scripts trying to find udevadm, and then not finding
libkmod, which was likely installed into /usr/lib64.

I guess I don't run a "standard" Linux system anymore.  I build a fairly
monolithic kernel that contains device drivers for all the hardware in the
machine needed to get it up and running, while miscellaneous modules (like
CIFS or the Happy MEal quad ethernet card) are modulues.  My MIPS systems
all run pure monolithic, completely lacking module support entirely.

The trend now seems to be to modularize everything these days, even stuff
like the core disk drivers, then build those core modules into an initramfs
that the kernel cherrypicks from at boot.  That's the perception, anyways,
and one which I don't really get.

Correct me if I'm wrong...
