Masking udev

If you wish to use eudev instead of udev, you may mask the package sys-fs/udev, but do NOT make the mistake of adding the -udev US flag in make.conf.

You may have:

$ cat /etc/portage/package.mask/systemd
sys-apps/systemd
sys-fs/udev

But in /etc/portage/make.conf:

# Do NOT add -udev simply because you want to use eudev!
USE=" ... -systemd ..."
