So keep them. Jeezus, ya cry baby, having devfs as an option in the
production kernel will not break/change/hurt/bloat a friggin thing. It's
an OPTION. Simply having the option there will not hurt ANYTHING.

*YOU* are not speaking for the industry, sir... You are speaking from
irrational fears and misplaced anger.

Current system...

User -> VFS -> EXT2 -> IDE/SCSI DISK -> and back up the chain (or
something like this)


User -> VFS -> DEVFS -> back up the friggin chain.

How simple can I put it???? It may be slightly off, but the shortcut
argument holds.

Understand, folks, he contradicts himself at every turn, does not care

Remember, we only want DEVFS to be an OPTIONAL CONFIG OPTION IN THE
PRODUCTION KERNEL, not a default. Use it, or not.

That will not break ANYTHING.
