This is not the default. udev check if devfs was used while installing. In this
case it use devfs.rules instead of udev.rules as a symlink in /etc/udev/rules.d
This is to avoid breaking your system : else you would have to change /etc/fstab
before rebooting, for example.
About /.dev i m too interested in an answer (i did the devfs migration a year
ago and did not though aboutit). My mount are :
/dev 561320 244480 288328 46% /.dev
none 5120 2700 2420 53% /dev
Which seems strange ... udev tmpfs mounted in dev mounted on .dev !
