 Module Name:	src
 Committed By:	apb

 Modified Files:
 	src/etc: MAKEDEV.tmpl
 Log Message:
 Add a linecount shell function, and use it to count the lines in the
 output from MAKEDEV.local.
 Fixes PR 37498 from dlagner at, using an idea from David
 Laight.  The while loop in the old code is executed in a subshell, so it
 can't make persistent modifications to the parent shell's variables.
