Have you got devfs? check the kernel (assuming you are using an old one
more than version 2.3.46) config for CONFIG_DEVFS_FS=y and
CONFIG_DEVFS_MOUNT=y. Or simply try "# mount" and check if /dev is a devfs
If you do have devfs, you'll have to use devfsd to control permissions
across reboots (or just do it from an rc file :)
