2200 Kernel Udev DElay During Boot



Machine Dell Optiplex GX270 with 2 GB of memory.

Booting the 2200 SMP or UP kernel delays of a very long time (82
seconds) at Starting udev.  

A little debugging puts the delay in /sbin/start_udev in the
wait_for_queue() proc waiting for /dev/.udev/queue.  In the second while
loop.  $loop reaches a value around -775.  It varies a little.

>From start_udev:

        wait_for_queue() {
                timeout=$((${1:-0} * 10))
                loop=20
                while test ! -d /dev/.udev/queue; do
                        usleep 100000;
                        test "$loop" -gt 0 || return 1
                        loop=$(($loop - 1))
                done
        
                loop=$timeout
                while test -d /dev/.udev/queue; do
                        usleep 100000;
                        if [ $timeout -gt 0 -a $loop -le 0 ]; then
                                echo -n "Wait timeout. Will continue in the background."
                                return 1
                        fi
                        loop=$(($loop - 1))
                done
                return 0
        }


The delay does not happen with the 2187 kernel, nor on an x86_64 machine
with the 2200 kernel.

Anyone else seeing this?
