I can think of no reason why anyone would provision a server of any
sort with a /dev/null that is a regular file, so I suspect a mistake
somewhere.  Also I suspect it has not been in that state for a long
time, as so many things redirect their output to /dev/null that it
would quickly grow to fill the filesystem.
