What `more intimate access' does udev use? netlink sockets use the socket API: normal system calls. inotify is a normal system call. Digging through /sys uses open()/read()/close(), normal system calls.
Sorry, I don't think that merely *reading /sys* binds you by the requirements of the GPL (if it does, then reading /proc does too, and I can think of a good few proprietary apps that do that, and nobody complains.)
