IOW, merge of new devfs code (2.4.17-pre1 in -STABLE, 2.5.1-pre2 in -CURRENT).

We really need CONFIG_DEBUG_* forced if CONFIG_DEVFS_FS is set. Otherwise
we'll be getting tons of bug reports due to silent memory corruption.

Keith, is there a decent way to do that? For 2.4.17 it would help a lot...
