I 'accidently' did a udev upgrade on my old venerable server that runs 2.6.32 kernel, and now in doubt whether I can stay with this kernel,
or have to upgrade. I somehow like 2.6.32, it served me well for years, and I enjoy seeing < 100000 timer interrupts accumulated over a year in comparison with
millions per day on modern kernels (tickless system in both cases).

As and alternative, I consider swithing to static /dev , but not sure how to proceed without errors (server is remote and I have one reboot chance without
having to drive to see it in person). Is there any guide ?

According to the udev-204 ebuild, the lowest compatible kernel version is 2.6.32 so you should be fine.

rh1 is correct, we patch support for 2.6.32 back to sys-fs/udev and both 204 and 206 should be good to go
