So if you use devfs, _please_ test this change and send either success or
failure reports (not to me though).
If you want devfsd functionality (well, at least the "REGISTER" and
"LOOKUP" events), you can get my user level program devfs_helper, which is
a reduced functionality replacement program for devfsd from the following
