udev sometimes gets stuck in a loop looking for md RAID devices
Last modified: 2010-07-22 13:18:33 EDT
Description of problem:
Approximately half the time, udev hangs for a long time at startup, and eventually produces many messages like this before eventually timing out:
Wait timeout. Will continue in the background. [FAILED]
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Approximately 50% of the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up rootfs on md RAID5
udev startup stops until timeout.
Fast startup without timeouts and error messages.
