[Gluster-devel] 2.0.0rc4 locks up when used as root

It looks like it locks up when used as root (afr/replicate) at the point 
where it initially starts up udev (not 100% sure where exactly yet, will 
have to put some trace code in rc.sysinit).

2.0.0rc2 didn't have this problem.

Unfortunately, I don't think I can provide any log output due to it 
being the rootfs (the only way I can think of for logging in that 
use-case is syslog support).

The file system not being accessible immediately after mounting also 
appears to still be the case with rc4, as it has been with previous 
versions. While it is possible to doctor mount.glusterfs to put a sleep 
and "ls -la > /dev/null" into it to work around the problem, it's a bit 
naf - glusterfs shouldn't really return until everything is ready for 
immediate access.
