Devfs is NOT in the kernel. If one wants to compile it, one can put it there
but it is not in the Sid stock kernel.
I have resited going to udev because I simply could not figure it out. What
would be really nice: An instiallation script that takes the current
working /dev and generates udev rules to reproduce it. One would be free to
play with them afterwards, of course.
Note that the udev on Sid requires 2.6.12 or newer kernels so putting this on
would demand that I leave 2.6.11 behind. If 2.6.14 still does not work, then
