Bug description:
  The udev package contains an upstart job, /etc/init/udevmonitor.conf,
  whose purpose is to record boot-time information about devices in a
  log file for future debugging.  There is no equivalent systemd unit
  for this job, so with the move to systemd, we now lose this useful
  debugging information.  I'm not aware of any other way under systemd
  to get a replay of the boot-time kernel events.  If there is one,
  that's fine, but otherwise there should be a systemd unit equivalent
  here that can give us this log.
