Newer udev (180+) is attempting to force /usr to be mounted *very* early in the boot sequence. No other software has this requirement, and it is going to break LVM2 users that have a separate /usr. Our official documentation recommends this, even today: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/lvm2.xml Now that it is unmasked and unleashed on ~arch users, this might result in an attempt to stable it. I would like for the council to decide on whether a separate /usr is still a supported configuration. If it is, newer udev can not be stabled and alternatives should be investigated. If it isn't, a lot of documentation will have to be updated. (And an alternative should likely still be provided) Regards, Tony V.
