As far as I can see, init execs "sh /etc/MAKEDEV -MM init" (or
/etc/MAKEDEV if /dev/MAKEDEV doesn't exist, as would be the case
for the ramdisk images), and MAKEDEV is copied into the
installation ramdisk from ${DESTDIR}/dev/MAKEDEV during the build
as far as I can tell.

At least in my local build results, ofppc's MAKEDEV uses 13 for
the rsd device nodes, so I'm not sure how 15 got in there. The
etc/MAKEDEV.awk script appears to parse the various appropriate
majors.* files to pick up the correct values for the platform,
and judging by my local result it does this correctly.
