OK, I committed the patch with a few minor changes.  Mostly formatting 
and date changes.

One minor thing to consider that I didn't change:  If we change the 
config file to use a variable, then the configuration could be 
optionally placed in the rc.site file.  For example:


or just

UDEV_RETRY="rtc alsa"

The script then would need to change to:

[ -r /etc/sysconfig/udev_retry ] && . /etc/sysconfig/udev_retry
if [ -z "${UDEV_RETRY}" ]; then exit 0; fi


for subsystem in $UDEV_RETRY; do
    /sbin/udevadm trigger --subsystem-match=$subsystem --action=add
