Subject[PATCH] don't create regular files in devfs
Even more devfs creptomancy :)

When devfs is enabled the i386 microcode and mtrr drivers try to create
regular files in devfs in addition to their regular interfaces
(miscdevice and procfs). The tools work with the normal interfaces
anyway in non-devfs systems and regular files in _dev_fs are a rather
strange concept..

Get rid of it.
