Note that /dev/ isn't empty before udev is executed.  /dev/zero and a
few others exist.

If init.d/procps should run after udev, you need to tell this to the
procps maintainer, as its LSB header currently state that it only
depend on mountkernfs, and because of this will run before udev when
dependency based boot sequencing is enabled.

Happy hacking,
