on lfs-hackers, it looks like this line causes a bit of grief for some people.
[ -f /dev/.udev.tdb ] && exit 0
It means, if /dev is writeable before udev, and something causes a
hotplug event [on a system with /sbin/hotplug].
Mostly the people working on the bootcd's have noticed this. (BTW,
there's a sed on the kernel page to prevent hotpug from running until
userspace is ready for it)
If people want it to stay, I am going to have it output a warning
message saying devices have already been initialized.
thought I'd mention it before I take action
