Thanks Andreas. But how can I specify major and minor numbers? As I
know and seems MAKEDEV supports only a list of devices it knows. As my
device entry would be specific, I get:
/sbin/MAKEDEV: don't know how to make device "grsec"
It should have 1,10 ad be char oriented. In the normal case I use mknod,
but that's fail for udev between reboots.

I see you use /dev/MAKEDEV instead of /sbin/MAKEDEV ; I do not get it,
at least on my system /dev/MAKEDEV is a symlink to the latter.
