In my case it hangs even if udev *is* running.

That call in the initscript should use --timeout=seconds parameter.

I'm running Linux with udev, and when I boot the system and it
hangs in udevsettle. The only way to make it continue is
plugging/unplugging something as a usb disk. then udevsettle returns and
initscript continues.

This results in a machine beeing unaccessible upon remote (re)boot.
Which is not nice if you're far away from it.
