udev call programs in /etc/dev.d with the environment variable SYMLINK

Fix for symlink handling.
Check it carefully. All I can say, is that it works for me.

Comment 3 Féliciano Matias 2004-10-04 09:01:11 EDT
My current patch does not apply to a vanilla udev.
Which patch from udev-032-7 can I expect to be upstream ?

Should I recreate the patch again a vanilla udev ?
Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-04 09:10:43 EDT
yes, please... I will include your patch in the next udev.
