Heh, that's what started this whole thing :)

I objected to TIOCGDEV going in as it seemed that only suse needed it
for their boot sequence, and no other distro did which implied that it
really wasn't necessary.

I'm still not convinced it is needed, and the many thousands of booting
systems out there without it seem to confirm it...
