comment udev rule not working
you can check what is happening with unbuffer udevadm monitor --environment. unbuffer is in expect-dev and ensures that your output is continuously updated (rather than buffered in 4kB blocks causing you sometimes to mis the last messages).

comment How do I find the offset of an ext4 filesystem?
photorec will probably be able to get your files off the disk, but filenames and pathnames will be lost. If you manage to mount the filesystem that is of course your better option, but if testdisk didn't find any, chances are that the start of the filesystem is corrupted too.

Try testdisk and the accompanying photorec.

Would auditing be an option or will that start too late during boot?

Maybe I should send Ken an email, asking for his consideration during the design phase ;o)

comment Typical use case for a group password
That is just an example, it has an 'x' and there are no group members other than ntp user itself. I just don't get what problem you are solving by setting the password field to !

comment Typical use case for a group password
Not sure what you mean. Eg. I can't newgrp ntp already, how does !-locking change that?

You already mention sudo and ACLs. I guess udev comes with a similar story, of course with a focus on devices. Interesting read.

comment mbcache documentation
Interesting. I wonder if bcache has good resilience after a power outage. One of the problems I face with flashcache is that it takes a fairly long time to flush the cache to my RAID set. A large cache may take longer than my UPS is able to sustain power to the system. However slight chance of this happening, it does influence the size of the cache that I can use.

comment Solaris 11 and syslog over TLS
No I haven't tried that because at the moment I don't have access to a server and my colleagues who do are all early birds ... @Solaris 11.1 interesting find, absolutely. I have to double check with Oracle I guess, I don't like betting in 24×7 enterprise environments. At least it confirms the bits of information I found online.
