SubjectRe: DEVFSv50 and /dev/fb? (or /dev/fb/? ???)

I'm considering that, but it looks like you'll have to have all
your device nodes statically made [like nowadays] and don't play _at
all_ with the plug order into the hub port's once you've got your
system set up; in other words: crappy, it breaks USB's spirit.

Nope; that's not the only way to do it. Instead, you could have a
user-mode daemon (just like PCMCIA does) which dynamically creates the
/dev files when each USB device is plugged in.

I've suggested doing this for all devices nodes as an alternative to
devfs, but the devfs folks seem to have ignored this proposal.
