The effort required to replace udev with mdev could be used to create an initramfs to mount that /usr , or alter the /etc/init.d/udev-mount to depend on an extra service, which does nothing else, but mount /usr . With the latter, further upgrades would just need to keep the extra depend in the init script, long live config-protect.<br>
<p>IMO, initramfs adds yet another black box during server boot. Plus, udev is getting more and more complex with all its intelligence. And yet another daemon in memory, something I certainly don't need on my static virtualized servers.</p>
