I installed the above rpm and now udev starts in 9 seconds.  Much better!  
The slowdown started when the targeted policy moved from version 1 to 2.

Back in late November Harald Hoyer asked users in fedora-devel-list to do 
some "udev alpha testing" and he created a udev-076-1 package.  I don't know 
if your udev rpm will cause people some problems/yum confusion or not.

Thanks to everyone who is working on selinux.  Keep up the good work.
