Not detecting arachsys containers is a high impact bug. My production
servers running on Ubuntu 16.04 can no longer be updated anymore as apt
is stuck on applying the makedev package which of course always fails.

I understand it is cumbersome to add all possible container types to the
script. Maybe the makedev script needs to be more specific when it
should run. Giving the remark in the package:

 This package is not necessary for most modern Linux systems, where the udev
 subsystem provides a more dynamic mechanism for device file management.

This means if udev is installed and don't run the script.
