The above error is from setup_devices() which is called in
first_stage_install() in /usr/lib/debootstrap/scripts/sid[1].  You could
try to move that to second_stage_install() and run debootstrap with
"--foreign --arch hurd-i386" as options.  Then, after rebooting, you can
try to run debootstrap again with "--second-stage" as option.

No idea whether this would work, but that is what we should aim to get
working at some point.


[1] If we made sure the underlying GNU/Linux had Roland's patch for
passive translator support via setfattr, we could just use that.
