Dear systemd maintainers,

as https://piuparts.debian.org/jessie2bpo/state-failed-testing.html shows,
this is mostly due to libsystemd0 and udev (look at the numbers in brackets
after the package names on that last URL, those are the number of packages
affected…) which both fail as shown in 

and https://piuparts.debian.org/jessie2bpo/fail/udev_230-7~bpo8+2.log

Both these logs contain this:

  Preparing to unpack .../udev_215-17+deb8u6_amd64.deb ...
  Unpacking udev (215-17+deb8u6) over (230-7~bpo8+2) ...
  Processing triggers for systemd (230-7~bpo8+2) ...
  dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of udev:
   systemd (230-7~bpo8+2) breaks udev (<< 228-5) and is installed.
    Version of udev to be configured is 215-17+deb8u6.

  dpkg: error processing package udev (--configure):
   dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
  Errors were encountered while processing:
  E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

As I see it this is because we only tell apt-get to install udev from
backports but dont tell it to also upgrade systemd to that version, so this
is probably rather a bug in apt (or maybe piuparts) but not in src:systemd.

Do you agree?
