The problem seems to be that I was trying to mount (a partition of)
the usb disk at boot time with localmount. The localmount init script
is run before the usb filesystem (usbfs) is mounted. I have now
listed it as noauto in fstab and mount it in local.start.
But I did learn a few points in reading several doc (especially
drake's udev guide).
The docs suggest placing local rules in 10-local.rules since that
prevents them from being overwritten by later generic rules. I tried
moving it to 99-local.rules; nothing changed.
The URL referenced by Q suggests that you can only use one section of
output from udevinfo to construct a rule. In fact you can use two,
the original "dev" node and ONE parent. Thus I could include the
serial number as a matching criteria.
Again thanks for the help.
