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
