Description: Since udev >= 136 the options about SYSFS_DEPRECATED aren't supported anymore.

You can see a message when starting it:
udev: starting version 139
udev: deprecated sysfs layout; update the kernel or disable CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED; some udev features will not work correctly

Please see the udev:
* ChangeLog.
require non-SYSFS_DEPRECATED 2.6.20+ kernel
- Version 2.6.22 of the Linux kernel for reliable operation of this release of udev. The kernel must not use the CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED* option.
To support some advanced features, Linux 2.6.22 is the oldest supported version now. The kernel config with enabled SYSFS_DEPRECATED is no longer supported.

If you don't see this message at boot/startup is because udevd can't log see:  FS#13720  - [udev-139-1] Add "kmsg" char device to /lib/udev/devices/

Okay, at first I thought this bug report was invalid, but reading more about SYSFS_DEPRECATED indicates that you are absolutely right, we need to disable it.
