Comment(by mickb):


 I would like to point out several inconsistencies on these two scripts.
 Nothing harmful, and I believe the main responsible is the recent change
 in the Udev engineering regarding the Devtmpfs FS. :-)

 Mountvirtfs :[[BR]]
 1- For the "Short-Description" & "Description" items, we should have :
 "Mounts /sys, /proc and /dev virtual (kernel) filesystems."

 Udev :[[BR]]
 1- For the "Short-Description", I think it would be more accurate to tell
 : "Populates /dev with additional device nodes."[[BR]]
 2- Same as 1- for log_info_msg in the "start" case[[BR]]
 3- "Description" item should be : "Starts the udevd daemon. Device nodes
 are created as defined by udev."
