The current snapshot in the beginning of November failed to install
because libdisk's function MakeDev() tried to mknod() in devfs partiton.
The patch I provided just skipped mknod() if the kernel knew devfs,
even if sysinstall tried to mknod() other than the devfs partition,
which caused the bug you reported.
Matusita-san has committed the proper fix to the problem, so please
try newer snapshot and report the result as a followup to PR 31009
if possible.
