While testing, using old udev didnt work at all. I have fixed
alpine-desktop dep to use eudev.

The plan is to fix busybox depmod so we can use busybox utils instead
of hard depndency of kmod.

That said, it is probably a good idea to fix alsa-utils too.

I got other report of that too:

I don't know why or how to fix it.

Yes. This was a risky upgrade. But upgrading udev has always been
risky. For a while things broke for almost every udev upgrade, which is
the reason we stayed on the old udev-175 for years without upgrading.

We need move forward though.
