Devfs is gone for good.  uDev replaces it.  The problem with devfs was, from the
kernel list, that is was buggy, racey and unmaintained.  Over a year ago it was
announced that it was going away in the Doc/feature-removal-schedule.txt file
in the kernel source.  

Debain has just been slow to adapt.
