current users - udev-128 - don't forget!

Hi slackers,

Don't make my mistake - rename to rc.udev before you reboot if you upgrade to udev 128 .
I got lazy and omitted to do this. Took me a while to figure out why my system would not boot...

I like to use slackpkg for keeping -current (and stable) up to date.
It gives you a reminder if any .new files are present after upgrading.
