 That's what I did.  There's code in MAKEDEV that tests the running
 kernel version, and does the right thing based on that.  I don't
 think you have to rm the old one first; just run `MAKEDEV console'.

 Actually, on a formerly `slink' system upgraded to kernel 2.2.x, I
 think you should run `MAKEDEV generic' once.  There are probably
 other devices it needs to update.
