After a migration of a complete / Filesystem with dump - restore. I made
the mistake to already have a small new system on the new disk. So I
decided to do a

# cd /
# restore urf root.dump

I got at the end:

/dev/ad0d: cannot create special file: File exists
WARNING: Driver mistake: repeat make_dev("ad0s1")
panic: don't do that

Is this really a Driver mistake ? Or am I mistaken ?

I guess we should do a

# chflags nodump /dev

during the install on CURRENT. Why has been /dev dumped anyway ?
