The way you check out files on your Windows box has nothing to do with
the contents of the repository you check these files out from (well,
you will be unable to edit those files but then again they are just
device nodes and hence have no content).

So I'd say using sparse checkout on Windows is a way to go in this

On a side note, it's interesting how device nodes ended up being
tracked by etckeeper.  I'm not familiar with this tool, so my question
is: does it store ownership and access information of files it track?
Do the same apply to major/minor numbers of device node files?
