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
 http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/hints/downloads/files/Root_FS_on_RAID+encryption+LVM.txt
 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
 upstream...
