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:
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)
