Yes, however, at this point in time it seems best to do a 2.2 with udev.
We might look into a alternative solution in parallel, but since this
solution is not ready yet, and the users can't update kernels without
switching to udev will probably make sense for now.

Did you experience a lot of problems with gcc 4? We've updated some
packages at work, and even though some patches were required, most fixes
were rather trivial. So I wouldn't mind seeing gcc 4 in 2.2, even though
it doesn't make sense to switch if the amount of work required to build
our packages it too large.

Kind regards, Johannes
