That's your problem. It's obviously assuming devfs is compiled
into the kernel. We don't support devfs as it's use is deprecated
(it is already been ripped out and replaced by udev in 2.6).

You're best bet is to boot up another partition with native Linux
and then copy the /dev entries into the other partition.
