Don't confuse the device entries in /dev with real hardware.... having
one doesn't make the other appear automatically :)

Then, there is no valid reason for clobbering your /dev directory with
millions of device files for hardware you don't have.

So, stick with Debian's defaults, and add what you need, should anything
be missing. /dev/MAKEDEV is your friend.
