I booted a KVM machine with a bullseye nfsroot.
I see 6 lines when FAI_ACTION=install but 27 lines when
FAI_ACTION=inventory. Very strange.

I found out that "udevadm trigger" is executed when doing the
inventory but not when doing the installation.

I will think about where to put the missing udevadm trigger call.
