It is complete same behaviour also on USB floppy

they're working but USB drives are failing? Which is it?
maybe, we got a bit
off the topic. Problem are not non-working drives, but
that udevd continuosly tries to access (spin up) drives, without disk
inserted. That should'nt be so on any removable media drives.
Also are some tasks slowed down, waiting for something udevd does, extreme
example is calling yast bootloader.. which takes several (tens?) minutes.
This is important, I changed the subject line accordingly.
It is very different the kernel being unable to access as compared to udev
triggering reads or motor on continuously.
Now, how do you know this is what is happening?
You posted this:
it is obviously udevd trying to access:

I see udev trying, then kernel failing. :-?
Did you try login in a different desktop? Perhaps close the graphical
session, and try in text mode?
Enter a line in fstab for the floppy, no-auto?
