comment of the bug report.

If the script that you wrote is so great, can you send it to me(or give me a 
link to it)? Just for my educational purpose :)
My main motivation to improve the script, is that MAKEDEV was and is still the 
solution choosen by the LFS Book, and the fact that the script doesn't follow 
completly the specification's given in the kernel.
