--- Comment #1 from Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni at free-electrons.com> ---
I don't think the fix can be that simple: it causes a circular dependency.

Indeed "udev" is provided either by the "eudev" or "systemd" packages. And both
eudev and systemd depend on util-linux:

EUDEV_DEPENDENCIES = host-gperf host-pkgconf util-linux kmod

        $(if $(BR2_PACKAGE_BASH_COMPLETION),bash-completion) \
        host-gperf \
        host-intltool \
        kmod \
        libcap \

So, by adding a dependency on udev in util-linux, you create a circular

I'm not sure how we can break this circular dependency, unfortunately :-/
