  devfs in kernel 2.6 will not redundantly do devpts.  In other words,
with 2.6 it is necessary to compile in and utilise devpts as well.

  Currently, /etc/init.d/devpts.sh fails to capture this situation. 
It recognises that devfs is mounted, and decides not to configure and
mount devpts, which is incorrect behaviour for 2.6.

  Since kernel 2.4 was the only version to have the version of devfs
that also did devpts, checking for 2.4 is all that is necessary.

  The only issue i noticed was that xterms would fail to start, citing
failure to open a tty.  The changes i made to devpts.sh fixed my
problem.

  Patch attached.

Any version except for the recent ones in unstable... starting at
2.3.2-1.

    - debian/libc/etc/init.d/devpts.sh: Modify mounting devpts for 2.5.68 and
      later.  As of 2.5.68, devpts is not automounted when using devfs. So
      even in that case, devpts needs to be mounted via the devpts.sh script
      as well as the case that devfs is not used.
