I see MAKEDEV.local in /dev but not in /etc.  Do I need to copy /dev/MAKEDEV to 
/etc and edit it there?

Would the system find and automatically execute /etc/MAKEDEV.local?

Linux and FreeBSD never have the problem of not being able to use a device for 
lack of device nodes, but I remember the days long ago when Linux and FreeBSD 
preassigned device nodes as NetBSD and OpenBSD still do.

I tried to edit /dev/MAKEDEV, found it to be read-only, then tried 
/dev/MAKEDEV.local and found that to be also read-only.

So I made the needed changes to /dev/MAKEDEV (w! in vi).  I haven't rebooted 
yet, would like to see if USB 3.0 works and the Atheros AR9271 on motherboard 
is recognized.
