?? His only reference to devfs was "If you use devfs you may need ...".  It
doesn't seem likely that he used it at all.  I think you're going about this
in the wrong order.  Turn off devfs first, get it working, THEN try figuring
out what to do to get devfs.  Devfs is no more likely to work with your
configuration on 2.4.19 than on an earlier kernel.
