Just to make a subtle distinction here, I'll point out that the function of devfsd is not to provide devfs, but to make devfs backwards-compatible with the old naming scheme. If you have your old device names in /dev, then devfsd is doing its job, whether or not you have mounted a devfs filesystem. If you need devfs, that's a kernel issue.
