Description of problem:
udev startup reports several non-fatal error messages.

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

How reproducible:
Every time. Visible on every boot (with rhgb disabled, obviously).

Actual results:
Several errors like the following come up:
usb_id[562]: unable to access '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.2/usb4/4-2/4-2.2/4-2.2:1.0/input/input8/mouse2'
usb_id[563]: unable to access '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.2/usb4/4-2/4-2.2/4-2.2:1.0/input/input8/event8'

Expected results:
Startup with no errors.

Additional info:
This issue is also apparent in Fedora 12 with udev package:

Comment 6 Karel Volný 2010-10-06 13:14:00 UTC
I don't get these messages, so I can't verify ...

however, there is the patch udev-147-no-usb_id-err.patch which changes the logging from error to info

-               err(udev, "unable to access '%s'\n", devpath);                                                                                                                  
+               info(udev, "unable to access '%s'\n", devpath);                                                                                                                 

and it applies cleanly, see for example here:

+ echo 'Patch #118 (udev-147-no-usb_id-err.patch):'
Patch #118 (udev-147-no-usb_id-err.patch):
+ /bin/cat /builddir/build/SOURCES/udev-147-no-usb_id-err.patch
+ /usr/bin/patch -s -p1 --fuzz=0
+ echo 'Patch #119 (udev-147-virtio-blk-patch_id.patch):'
