Only the command stubs use kudzu anymore.
anaconda is the only thing keeping kudzu around, for the most part. Everything that it uses it for can be handled by the 'normal' mechanisms that the OS uses for probing, module loading, and device discovery these days.
Benefit to Fedora
anaconda uses the same mechanisms as the rest of the OS.
Because the kudzu -> udev/HAL change is a refactoring of infrastructure:
- General Regression testing
- execute kudzu tests, results should be similar or expected with new udev/HAL changes
