udev, at least for the general case of users using devices in /dev,
fully replaces MAKEDEV.

The only exceptions I can think about are broken drivers which have not
been ported to the device model (but I could not name any) and people
who create device nodes out of /dev for weird reasons (usually because
they need multiple copies of the same device with different owners).
