[Xen-devel] [patch] xen udev rule interfering with openvpn

There is a Fedora bug report https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=812421 reporting that openvpn is having problems because of the line
SUBSYSTEM=="net", KERNEL=="tap*", ACTION=="add", RUN+="/etc/xen/scripts/vif-setup 
$env{ACTION} type_if=tap"
in /etc/udev/rules.d/xen-backend.rules which is causing the xen script to run when openvpn tries to use a tap device, causing it to fail. I have used the attached patch to solve this problem, by matching the form of the tap device that xen uses more exactly to avoid to openvpn case. A better long-term solution (suggested in one of the comments in the bug) might be to use a more specific name instead of "tap" so we have less chance of interfering with another application.
