Put "set -x" at the beginning of /sbin/start_udev [use a rescue mode CD-ROM];
boot and see where it hangs. Later in the same script, trace the system
calls of /sbin/udevstart: "strace /sbin/udevstart".
I have different hardware with the same symptom. The cause seems to be
related to USB probing, and began somewhere around kernel-2.6.15:
I am nearing the end of a "git bisect" search to find the kernel bug.
