Hmm. Are devices needed for anything besides the tests? It would seem
to me that the host's /dev/directory could be mounted to the chroot
directory tree for that requirement. I wouldn't think that would affect
the purity of the tests, and it would simlify the "Populating /dev"
section -- possibly remove the requirement completely.
