I would like to present nldev[0], which is a simple tool that will at‐
tach to the netlink bus of the Linux kernel and run mdev(1) (part of
busybox). Additionally it includes helper files for mdev(1) that emulate
much of the udevd madness. Some parts are avoided, like »by‐part« sym‐
links to devices, as they would require the utilities included in the
udev distribution.

See the README.md for how to replace udevd on your system.

If you just want to play with the netlink uevents, see nlmon[1], the
little brother of nldev.
