Comment(by bryan@…):

 Wait, no, that's not all.

 The DRI ("card*") and device-mapper ("dm-*") rules in 55-lfs.rules both
 specify OPTIONS+="ignore_device".  That's gone now as well, so I suspect
 the rules won't parse.  (Either that, or users will get nastygrams in
 their log files.)  We need to kill those rules.  Unfortunately I don't
 have a DRI setup (nvidia here), so I don't know what kinds of issues
 removing that rule will cause.

 I do, however, have a device-mapper setup; removing that rule is one of
 the steps required to get the (very very recent) LVM package's udev rules
 to work properly.  See
 for the steps required as of whatever LVM2 version I last tried.  (2.02.53
 it looks like.)

 Last, I think it's about time to do another audit for duplicated rules.  I
 believe a bunch of them (ALSA, specifically) are now available from
