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.
