Looking at the make_extras_nodes () function in /sbin/start_udev 
logic to read /etc/sysconfig/makedev.d/*.nodes  has been introduced
and the cp -a /etc/udev/devices/* /dev/ >/dev/null 2>&1  logic has been removed.

Not sure what those .nodes files are suppose to look like. Anyone care
to share a simple example for say... the nvidia devices.  Unless I'm
missing something the faq instructions
( http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/udev/ )
  cp -a /dev/nvidia* /etc/udev/devices
  chown root.root /etc/udev/devices/nvidia*

are no longer going to work with the new start_udev  logic.
