Motivation for this change

#73095 partially gave me the idea to work on this patch set to help unload udev-settle. I worked some additional enhancements to the ksm configuration while I was at it.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nix-review --run "nix-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits
Notify maintainers

There aren't really any of these for ksm but I would appreciate anybodies input on this

Oops, looks like my maintainer attribute is tied up in #53032 and that's why the check fails here vs when I tested it.
