I don't think it's needed. See the bug mentioned earlier. I've patched
drakx-kbd-mouse-x11 and I think we should just push udev and that
together straight to core. I've also got udev pkg here, but the changes
are simply anyway (just drop one upstream patch and some minor changes
to the files list).
