Have you read /usr/src/linux/Documentation/filesystems/devfs/README?
There's a boatload of info in there that should help you make a decision
that's right for you, including stuff you may not even have considered.
In general, performance isn't an issue unless you have a resource-starved
embedded system. It's more a matter of whether you need anything that
devfs has to offer, and/or whether you want to play with it.
