i386 does not use devfs unless explicitly (and manually) configured to do
so.  s390, however, uses devfs by default, and in order for permissions to
be set correctly, and for backward compatibility with the old device names,
devfsd must be installed.

There should probably be something about this in the installation
documentation, but I do not know whether there actually is.
