yes - everything very nice. But the devices doesn't get updated, if you
insert a Zip disk
You can remove CONFIG_DEVPTS_FS and all inodes in /dev on the initrd
when it's working. I don't know if the final result is smaller or larger
than what we have now but it's the cleaner approach for CD ROM detection
we might win 66kbyte with the FPU, which might help. The kernel now is
908kbyte, afaik there nothing left. I thing somebody should try it - to
find out, if it's possible at all.
