OK, I upgraded and *nearly* got it completely right first time.
Nothing actually broke, but I was plagued by messages about "bad
message magic udevd_071" when booting up or shutting down.  For the
record, I had tripped over two gotchas:

  * I needed to run "make uninstall" in the udev-071 build tree before
    installing udev-096.  If you don't do that then something in the
    old udev-071 installation gets triggered during the boot.

  * I needed to disable hotplug.  (I inserted "exit 0" at the top of
    the bootscript.)

After fixing those two issues everything works perfectly.
