I was running 3.2. for nearly a year now and upgraded the first pair of
boxes to udev 197 with 3.4.32-vs2.3.3.9 and vanilla-sources two weeks
ago without any problems. These are production servers under partially
heavy load running between 5 and 15 guests.

Be warned about the gentoo udev update - it will most likely crash your
network config if you are using udev-persistent rules with "ethX" as
interface name!
