Description of problem:
This is a combination of mkinitrd and udev problem. After upgrading
these two packages and installing a new kernel one first notes that
the initrd image is twice the size of what it used to be. Than after
reboot at some stage of running init scripts we start gettting /dev/null
not found and a mess of error messages and everything hangs at
the end of scripts.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install mkinitrd-4.1.9 and udev-030-11
2.install a new kernel
