Here is the latest version of the news item; this gives a few days
notification before the unmasking.
Title: udev-181 unmasking
Author: William Hubbs <email@example.com>
udev-181 is being unmasked on 2012-03-17 UTC.
This news item is to inform you that once you upgrade to a version of
udev >=181, if you have /usr on a separate partition, you must boot your
system with an initramfs which pre-mounts /usr.
An initramfs which does this is created by >=sys-kernel/genkernel-3.4.25 or
>=sys-kernel/dracut-017-r1. If you do not want to use these tools, be
sure any initramfs you create pre-mounts /usr.
Also, if you are using OpenRC, you must upgrade to >= openrc-0.9.9.
