Comment(by hohoxu_hao115):

 From udev version 155(if i remember correctly), udev will copy content in
 /lib/udev/devices directory for us. I think Andy Benton didn't upgrade his
 udev package.

 Further more, if we enable kernel devtmpfs, we even don't need  null
 device exists in /lib/udev/devices directory. And according to  what udev
 changelog said, enabling kernel devtmpfs is recommended by udev
 developers, in future udev release , it will be mandatory.
