    Well that's quite a problem. We're certainly causing people such as
    yourself to take on quite a lot of work. But on the other hand we do want
    the kernel to progress sanely, and that sometimes involves taking things

    I don't have enough info to know whether the world would be a better place
    if we keep devfs, remove devfs or remove devfs even later on. I don't
    think anyone knows, which is why we're taking this little
    disable-it-and-see-who-shouts approach.
