Hmm, we presumably need to do something to tell udev so that the
device node can be made.  I'm not sure what we're missing. We
have calls to tty_register_driver and register_console. There's
nothing in any of the tty drivers that looks like specific calls
to udev.

We register the driver as NO_DEVFS, but I presume this is totally
orthogonal to udev.

Do virtual block devices appear OK? 

Does anyone have a pointer to some documentation on udev? The
OLS2003 paper doesn't go into any detail of what drivers need to
