    Provide a way to support older versions of udev that are shipped in
    older distros.  If this option is disabled, it will also turn off the
    compatible symlinks in sysfs that older programs might rely on.
    When in doubt, or if running a distro older than 2006, say Yes here.

+         This option creates deprecated symlinks such as the
+         "device"-link, the <subsystem>:<name>-link, and the
