Subject: [PATCH] udev: remove seqnum API and all assumptions about seqnums

The way the kernel namespaces have been implemented breaks assumptions
udev made regarding uevent sequence numbers. Creating devices in a
namespace "steals" uevents and its sequence numbers from the host. It
confuses the "udevadmin settle" logic, which might block until util a
timeout is reached, even when no uevent is pending.

Remove any assumptions about sequence numbers and deprecate libudev's
API exposing these numbers; none of that can reliably be used anymore
when namespaces are involved.

- * DISCLAIMER - The file format mentioned here is private to udev/libudev,
- *              and may be changed without notice.
- *
- * The udev event queue is exported as a binary log file.
- * Each log record consists of a sequence number followed by the device path.
- *
- * When a new event is queued, its details are appended to the log.
- * When the event finishes, a second record is appended to the log
- * with the same sequence number but a devpath len of 0.
- *
- * Example:
- *        { 0x0000000000000001 }
- *        { 0x0000000000000001, 0x0019, "/devices/virtual/mem/null" },
- *        { 0x0000000000000002, 0x001b, "/devices/virtual/mem/random" },
- *        { 0x0000000000000001, 0x0000 },
- *        { 0x0000000000000003, 0x0019, "/devices/virtual/mem/zero" },
- *
- * Events 2 and 3 are still queued, but event 1 has finished.
- *
- * The queue does not grow indefinitely. It is periodically re-created
- * to remove finished events. Atomic rename() makes this transparent to readers.
- *
- * The queue file starts with a single sequence number which specifies the
- * minimum sequence number in the log that follows. Any events prior to this
- * sequence number have already finished.
