Is there a general purpose way to get an accounting of the number of
udev events or the maximum length of the unhandled event que since
boot( or since some point in time)? Basically a way to ask how many
events udev has been asked to handle prior to the existing call to
settle as it exists now in the boot process of Fedora. Not all events
are equal, but I'd like to make sure that when I'm looking at settle
timing in different situations I have a rough idea of how much work
udev has been asked to do ahead of that settle call.
