Its nvidias attempt to have the most complex method of doing
the simplest thing. Dont bother with mktemp unless you want
to. Instead have a look at makedevices.sh in the nvidia tree.
All it wants to do is add a line to modules.conf and create
some device files. I know its good to cater for different
environments but IMHO they went over the top with this :)
