Good catch.  I forgot about that.

IIRC, that was dropped because udev did that for us.  AFAIK, it still 
does, at least on my system it does, but I'm still using udev-173 from 
LFS-7.0.  From the udev man page:

"Static device nodes might be provided by kernel modules or copied
from /lib/udev/devices. These nodes might not have a corresponding
kernel device at the time udevd is started; they can trigger automatic
kernel module loading."

That quote is buried a bit on the page when discussing rules.
