I found that /sbin/udev_run_devd and /sbin/udev_run_hotplugd are called from /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules
At the end of that file is the following:
# Be backward compatible for a while with the /etc/dev.d and /etc/hotplug.d/.
# systems run /etc/hotplug.d/ stuff only if we came from a hotplug event,
# not for udevstart:
# always run /etc/dev.d/ stuff for now
Can someone confirm that these lines are present in their Slack-current setup? Since I don't use hotplug I figure I could simply comment them out.
UPDATE: yep, commenting those two lines solves it. But I still don't understand why they are there if /sbin/udev_run_hotplugd and /sbin/udev_run_devd don't exist??
Bit more digging shows that the files are part of the alternative versions of udev:
udev-064-i486-2 in extra/udev-alternate-versions
udev-071-i486-2 in extra/udev-alternate-versions
