So, you mention that license that I use now
# hsfconfig --info 2>&1 | grep "License key"
        License key    : FREE

is not valid, and may be if I buy "full" license it is fix situation?

Gentoo, udev 0.94,
I don't think that it is related to distribution issue,
just udevd become more strict.

At first look `hsfconfig --dumpdiag' take some private information from
dmesg output, so I'll send it after I check its output.
