How practical would it be to compile devfs and include devfsd in the

on my system, devfsd is 33k, 15k after gzip.  This would let b-f get rid of
/dev/*, and could make for more reliable installation scripts (i.e, once
you've inserted the module you can forget about whether there's a dev entry).

I'm not sure if bootfloppies is using a 2.4 kernel, though.  Probably not,
considering the massive increase in size between 2.2 and 2.4.
