New udev config is available at:



  * Removed nvidia rules
    - Due to class interface change to GPL only, nvidia can no longer use this.

  * Removed bug reporting rule
    - uevent leaks do happen and are unfixable, so bug reports are useless. I 
have to look how SuSE watches for kernel threads.

  * Moved Debian-based persistent CD-ROM rules to contrib
    - this means that the book should say something about creating rules for 
CD-ROM symlinks manually. Both "location persistence" and "model/serial 
persistence" should be explained, see 
http://linuxfromscratch.org/pipermail/lfs-dev/2006-May/057173.html and 

  * Adapted firmware rule to udev-093
    - that's because the binary firmware helper got replaced with a shell script 
with different name.
