[current] udev and /dev/root


in rc.udev there is this rules
Code:
echo 'ACTION=="!remove", SUBSYSTEM=="block", ENV{MAJOR}=="'$MAJORNUMBER'", ENV{MINOR}=="'$MINORNUMBER'", SYMLINK+="root"' > /dev/.udev/rules.d/61-dev-root-link.rules
but don't create symlink /dev/root, because there is a possible error in ACTION

with ACTION!="remove" it's ok

Code:
echo 'ACTION!="remove", SUBSYSTEM=="block", ENV{MAJOR}=="'$MAJORNUMBER'", ENV{MINOR}=="'$MINORNUMBER'", SYMLINK+="root"' > /dev/.udev/rules.d/61-dev-root-link.rules
