Using loadproc() makes sense just together with killproc() - all they do is
running processes and existing PIDs in /var/run.
Devfsd must be started _before_ any fsck(s), that means your root is mounted ro
at that
time. Therefore you can't create any pid(s). So do just this - start devfsd
before any fsck(s),
and rw remounting. Should work fine.
