and if we'll have the support in the kernel AND have all devices on the disk, there will be a diskspace-problem.

You could remove all device nodes except cloop from the initrd and only use devfs there. The actual system is a different issue, devfs should not be monted on /dev there until we can be sure that all applications support devfs.

IIRC, devfs was chosen for debian-installer because removing all the device nodes also gained more disk space than the extra size of devfs in the kernel.
