        mount -t devfs devfs /home/jail/dev

would work, but all dynamic devices would appear there too.

Once we have an extensible facility for mount options, you will be
able to say:

        mount -t devfs devfs /home/jail/dev
        ( cd /home/jail/dev ; rm $devices_i_dont_want_in_my_jails )
        mount -u -o nonewdev /home/jail/dev

To solve that problem.
