LTC11066-Symbolic link does not exist for hotplugs

Description of problem:
Symbolic links were not created for hotplug events
Note:I am not entitled to raise defects for "Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Beta", hence opening this bug under product "Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.7-1.451.2.3, rpm-4.3.2-0.4, RHEL4 Alpha4
Steps to Reproduce:
1.No symolic link exits for hotplugs
What sort of symbolic links are you looking for?
What architecture (you mentioned 'alpha', that doesn't seem right. :) )
Usually for hotplugging support a symbolic link is being created
which exactly refers to the specific device number of a (e.g.) DASD.
It means that like in UDEV or DEVFS I have the opportunity to refer
to a DASD for instance as /udev/dasd/0.0.<devno>/part1. This entry
infact would be a symbolic link to the original DASD name which might
be for instance /dev/dasdX1.
My apologies the defect I raised is for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Beta
Since I do not have the access rights yet, for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux Beta , I have raised under Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

I have made the following observations.
When I added two more entries for DASD in the file /etc/udev/rules.d/50-
The sym links are getting created in the directory /dev/dasd.
However I feel for zSeries these entries should present by default.Please let
me know your concern on this.
are these the only rules you need for udev??

Yes these are the only two entries , which I added to create symbolic links
for dasd. It works .
