Current software module implementation heavily relies on some interfaces inside sysfs. However, sysfs has several versions, and software modules uses v2, but current Linux distros start shipping kernels that support sysfs-v3 only.

More information is available in mailing list archives:

Current proposal is to replace all calls to sysfs with equivalent udevadm info or udevinfo invocations.

  • Target version changed from 1.4 to 2.1

Needs to be checked whether it's still relevant, and, if it is, should be done in 2.1.
