    Did you build udev using glibc or klibc? I used klibc and it worked
    just fine, as udev and udevd does not need /dev/null to work, unlike
    programs built against glibc.

    As for needing the fb nodes, you should probably just add them to the
    start_udev script in the section that we add the other needed symlinks
    to /dev until the kernel starts exporting those sysfs entries (hopefully
    any day now...)
