For most people, read/write access to /dev is rarely needed -- how
often do you create new VGs or LVs? How often do you run MAKEDEV or
vgscan? Sometimes you need to change tty inodes but that's what
/dev/pts is for.

If you do need read-write access to /dev but not /, put it on a
separate filesystem. Leave just a skeletal /dev in your root
filesystem, enough to bootstrap.
