This has been discussed before, and the consensus is that it will not be
modified. MAKEDEV's purpose is primarily educational and only by
accident functional: you have to read it and modify it according to your
needs, in the mean time learning all there is to know about mknod, your
hardware, and the linux/hardware interface :)
