We removed the kmod builtin because it was problematic both for those of us on Gentoo stable and in the sense that it was mandatory. We can reintroduce it as an optional dependency with a configure script option. This will either use some busybox-style module loading code or make it invoke modprobe.

The plan is for this to occur before our first release.

@dvdhrm dvdhrm libudev: enumerate: fix NULL-deref for subsystem-matches
udev_device_get_subsystem() may return NULL if no subsystem could be
figured out by libudev. This might be due to OOM or if the device
disconnected between the udev_device_new() call and
udev_device_get_subsystem(). Therefore, we need to handle subsystem==NULL
safely.

Instead of testing for it in each helper, we treat subsystem==NULL as
empty subsystem in match_subsystem().

Backtrace of udev_enumerate with an input-device disconnecting in exactly
this time-frame:
