Comment:
My problem is due to hdparm, which is invoked via /lib/udev/hdparm.

When /lib/udev/hdparm is run, the kernel reports the following errors:

hda: dma_intr: status=0x58 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest }
ide: failed opcode was: unknown
hda: set_drive_speed_status: status=0x58 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest }
ide: failed opcode was: unknown

The hdparm processes block forever in io-wait, and thus can't be killed. 
This is the reason for udevplug's long runtime, and also the reason EVMS doesn't start.

My system booted perfectly after setting the first line of
/lib/udev/hdparm to 'exit 0'.
