Default Added udev-127 changes to trunk

Hi guys,
Aaron already did a good job, i commited the following to trunk:

removed migrate_udev
-> initscripts do the job
removed start_udev
-> initscripts do the job
updated readme-udev-arch.txt
-> changed some stuff to fit to new udev handling
removed cdrom-rules.patch
-> cdroms are not symlinked by path so this patch is useless
changed 80-drivers.rules to work with module blacklisting
-> load-modules.sh doesn't support modprobing and blacklisting multiple
modules in a line
removed unneeded lines from 51-arch.rules
-> since 2.6.22 the scsi help modules are autoloaded, also rtc_clock
renamed 51-arch.rules to 81-arch.rules to not interfere with standard rules
-> add our small changes at the end of rules cascade

The 81-arch.rules file includes:
- loading of some modules which cannot be autodetected
- simple cdrom/dvd symlinking
- arch specific group settings
- symlinking devices in /dev probably coming from devfs style
im not sure about all of them

One note about udev-127:
- Our default rules moved to /lib/udev/rules.d/ .
- /etc/udev/rules.d is also parsed for user specific udev files and will be
loaded before the default rules.
- If you have rules with the same name, /etc/udev/rules.d/ willl be loaded and
the system default will be ignored.

If we start moving udev to testing, we should rebuild other packages to move
the rules to the new system default directory, but it will not break anything
because the old directory is parsed too.

If you want to test udev-127 grab it from here:
http://dev.archlinux.org/~tpowa/udev/

have fun
greetings

Gah, please don't do this. I had lots of changes locally and you knew
I was in the process of updating this and changing things due to all
the emails I had going around.... I had a local build with all these
changes already,...

This just made all the work I did (and was doing) moot and duplicated.
Next time please contact me. The web interface does indicate it is my
package and it is known that I was working on it...
