Devfs is entirely optional, however, it works swimmingly!
Just download the devfsd from freshmeat or wherever the kernel docs point to 
and make sure to run it early on in init.

Basically, just create the /dev directory as normal, but don't create dev 
entries.  And add the line 'devfsd /dev' to the top of /etc/init.d/rcS.
