No. Running 2.6.28.1 "find /dev -ls | grep j" returns nothing.
Running 2.6.27.9, the same "find /dev -ls | grep j" returns:

These are almost the same when running "find /sys/bus/gameport -ls":

Kernel 2.6.28.1 (missing one line):

Kernel 2.6.27.9 has one more line (see 12040):

If there is anything else I can provide, please let me know.
