Udev rules

Hello,

I have tested the udev-related items at 
svn://svn.linuxfromscratch.org/cross-lfs/trunk/udev

I have some comments.

1) there is no MODALIAS rule:

ACTION=="add", MODAILAS=="?*", RUN+="/sbin/modprobe $modalias"

Without this rule, there's no replacement for hotplug's module-loading 
ability.

2) The input.sh script doesn't seem to work: the "mousedev" module is 
never loaded here, although it should.

3) The "mount.sh" script imposes a policy. It is not wanted for those 
who prefer mounting their storage devices via ivman. The configuration 
should be rearranged in such a way that it is easy to disable this 
script and there should be no need to redo this step when upgrading udev.
