14 udev/eudev has nothing to do with it. It's the init systems (as in
15 both systemd and OpenRC) the ones that are pushing/have pushed for
16 dropping support for it. In Gentoo, the move is being championed by
17 William Hubs:
21 He's the OpenRC maintainer. NOBODY who has actually worked on the
22 problem wants to support a separate /usr without an initramfs, because
23 it makes no sense.
25 So it doesn't matter if you use udev, eudev, mdev or even a static
26 /dev directory; no init system wants to support a separate /usr
27 without an initramfs.
29 And for a good reason: is braindead.
