udev (173-0ubuntu4) oneiric; urgency=low

  * Set a timeout of 61 seconds when calling udevadm control --exit, to
    ensure that udevd always reaches its *own* timeout first.  If udevadm
    times out before udevd, it exits non-zero, breaking the move of the /dev
    mount; and if we ignore the udevadm failure then udevd might still be
    running, which is the original issue that the patch for bug #624469
    was trying to address.  Raising the timeout doesn't make the boot any
    slower, it just makes sure we let udevd count the 60 seconds instead of
    udevadm.  LP: #818177.
  * debian/patches/race-condition-on-exit: Process events before signals
    in the worker thread, so we don't sit around waiting 60 seconds for an
    already-dead process.
