Take a look at the /dev/vinum tree under devfs and non-devfs systems
and you'll understand why I wanted to get rid of the symlinks.

Basically, I found them to be distasteful and not worth keeping

To completely emulate the rats' nest of symlinks I would have had
to link to outside disks as well, I really didn't want to do

Lastly make_dev_alias() is undocumented.
