We are having a strange issue where /usr/bin/udevinfo will start going
crazy and max out the CPU until we manually kill it. On a reboot, it
seems to start eating away at the CPU.

From what I've read about udevinfo, it has more to do with usb devices and
such, so I have no idea what a server would be launching it.

The physical machine is a Dell PowerEdge server w/ plenty of CPU and
memory.

Any ideas whats going on?
