10 It's a bit of a gamble but I guess the worst that could happen is that
11 you are dropped into a basic shell. Then it is easy to add
12 udev-postmount again and reboot.

24 I wondered about this as well but at least on my systems, /usr/lib/udev
25 is already gone. I guess all packages were rev-bumped to fix it.
26 BTW: A fast way to express `equery belongs -n /usr/lib/udev | xargs
27 emerge -pv` is simply `emerge -pv1 /usr/lib/udev`
