Sure, how do you tell at run time whether a system is running DEVFS or not,
and whether or not the path you want is devfs (troll mountpoints?). It's
possible to run DEVFS, but, setup a jail with a standard /dev/ isn't it?

There are going to be other things that assume that /dev/ is just another
directory and are going to try to mkdir /dev/foo. 

Bear in mind this isn't my code, I just wanted it running... d8)

I'll remove the mkdirs and leave the make_devs in and see how we go.
Are there caveats with make_dev and DEVFS e.g. it only wants relative paths
not full paths?
