udev killed my sound!

Why did udev kill my soundcard? I updated 10.1 current via swaret - I had "EXCLUDE=alsa*" in the excludes list... among others - like I apparently should. But a udev update killed my soundcard (no soundcards found at boot).

At the prompt, I logged in as root and typed "chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.udev" and I have sound back.

Is udev very important? I'm on a laptop with little/no hardware changes. It seems like I can live without it (so far)....

c'est la vie...
