    Are you using devfs?
    I get the same messages with devfs.
    Looking up a /dev file that does not presently exist
    or have a corresponding module results in the above warnings.
    At boot time, on a redhat distro pam_console_apply tries to lookup
    the devices specified in /etc/security/console.perms, which causes a
    zillion warnings for me. The question is - are those warnings to correct
    way to handle a devfs lookup of a nonexisting device. I don't remember
    getting warnings under 2.4. Maybe I did, and just didn't notice (but I
    doubt it). They're certainly annoying and I don't like them.

    P.S. Not a kernel developer - just a tester :)
