37         <para>udevd listens to kernel uevents and passes the incoming events to
38         udev. It ensures the correct event order and takes care, that events for child
39         devices are delayed until the parent event has finished the device handling.
40         The behavior of the running daemon can be changed with
41         <command>udevadm control</command>.</para>
