udev reaching timeout

hello. when I boot, udev is reaching its timeout. how can I edit the rules files to avoid this? the remaining queue entries , which relate to my keyboard and its two built-in usb hubs, are:

      udevadm settle - timeout of 19 seconds reached, the event queue contains:
      /sys/devices/pci0001:00/0001:00:02.0/0001:01:0b.1/usb3/3-2 (623)

I don't know if this will help, but, in my udev rules, I see two timeout statements. Your udev rules files may differ. Try running
find /etc/udev -type f | xargs grep -i timeout
to see what turns up. Then try changing the timeout that is at or near the 19 seconds that is shown in your code clip.
This is what I see in my udev rules.
/etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev-default.rules:SUBSYSTEM=="scsi", KERNEL=="[0-9]*:[0-9]*", ACTION=="add", ATTR{type}=="0|7|14", ATTR{timeout}="60"
/etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev-default.rules:SUBSYSTEM=="scsi", KERNEL=="[0-9]*:[0-9]*", ACTION=="add", ATTR{type}=="1", ATTR{timeout}="900"
Once you get your system booted up, su to root and run "udevadm --timeout=XX" where XX is the time in seconds you want for a timeout.

no, I did not find "timeout" in any rules files. I temporarily set ignore_device on hidraw and mice devices, and now udev isn't hitting the timeout and settles in a few seconds. I guess the problem is solved.
