I was rather amazed that I had not seen the very slow udev start up other

morning, I was working on my machine and noticed I had turned SELinux off a
while back and never turned it back on.  Well, I turned it back on this
morning and rebooted.  Well, udev start up went from 5 seconds to about 30
seconds once SELinux was on.  Turned if back off, went back down to 5
seconds.  So, it looks like the slow udev issue has something to do with
SELinux.   I have SELinux set up with:


If I switch enforcing to disabled, startup works much faster.
