Subject: The eudev package doesn't provide expected udev

Package: eudev
Version: 3.2.2-9

I'm using OpenRC on Devuan ascii.
It seems that there's a race condition between and 
eudev on
boot which is probably due to "# Should-Start: udev" there not firing 
eudev, resulting in /dev/pts/ and /dev/shm/ not populating.
If I change "# Provides: eudev" to "# Provides: eudev udev" in
/etc/init.d/eudev, /dev/pts/ and /dev/shm/ populate fine so I conclude 
either the eudev package should provide "udev" or initscripts should 
expect eudev than udev.
