Much of that postinst seems to be workarounds written in 2005 or

I think this conditional block could be removed rather than fixed
(but looking at #543592 and #644318, maybe a package RM is better).

The MAKEDEV command itself is normally a no-op if udev is running
(via patches added during 2005/2006).

The conditional would have been always false since around August
last year ([2011-08-09] linux-latest-2.6 39 MIGRATED to testing)
