Default how to manually get udev to reconsult its rules?

after installing the QEMU accelerator "kqemu" packages yesterday
(which added a new udev rules file "60-kqemu.rules"), i wanted to kick
udev to reconsult its files in order to create the new dev file
/dev/kqemu.

it seemed sufficient to do:

# modprobe kqemu
# udevcontrol reload_rules

but i did notice that "man udevcontrol" actually describes "udevadm".
is this a newer standard for udev management? is "udevcontrol" still
there only for backward compatibility and should i be using a newer,
udevadm-based command for that that has the same effect? just
curious.
