Re: [PATCH] - get src/sbin/devfs to build and run on kfreebsd{tested on 5.4}

[ Not CCing ruskie; already notified him (via IRC) that his mail address is unusable ]

Should we have devfs in its own package?  I don't think it's justified to make
it Essential (via inclussion in freebsd-utils), but then again, I'm not very
familiar with this tool.
