That's unhelpful. It is, in my opinion, a bad idea to have to mount up 1400
instances of devfs just to get a few device nodes. It just doesn't seem
right. It's a kludge. What I will do instread is migrate the box to Solaris
where I can do what I want to do.

It's a poor argument to say basically "that's the way it is". I have always
found FreeBSD to be flexible, not restrictive.

If devfs is the only way to go, why does mknod still exist? Why does it
allow me to create device nodes that don't work?
