What am I supposed to see there?  I get three character devices, all
mounted on /dev directly.  In any case, what devfs has is support for
names with / in them.  It violates POLA and causes serious problems in
third party software.  I think that you should implement

In view of the fact that this thread is about deficiencies in your
