Just to clarify: does it not have /dev or is /dev empty?
Does it have tmpfs or mfs support in the kernel? If one of that is available
and /dev exists, init should mount a ramdisk over /dev and populate it.
And for the patch: MAKEDEVTARGET all sounds a bit heavy, most architectures
use a special "minimal" or "ramdisk" target (i.e. to create opty entries,
which are considered a security issue in non-install scenarios, but are
more lightweight than offering ptyfs support).
