xbd2 is not created during installation


I was experimenting with disk naming and multiple disk entries such as:

disk = [ 'file:/root/netbsd.img,hda,w' , 'file:/root/netbsd-swap.img,hdb,w' , 
'file:/root/i386cd-3.1.iso,cd0a,r' ]

disk = [ 'file:/root/netbsd.img,wd0d,w' , 'file:/root/netbsd-swap.img,wd1d,w' , 
'file:/root/i386cd-3.1.iso,cd0a,r' ]

These appear to work and the CD-ROM image, mapped to xbd2* is visible in dmesg:

xbd0: 1024 MB, 512 bytes/sect x 2097152 sectors
xbd1: 97 MB, 512 bytes/sect x 200000 sectors
xbd2: 207 MB, 512 bytes/sect x 425408 sectors

However, a device is not created by the installer for use with installation or 
on the system it is installing to. 'cd /dev && sh MAKEDEV xbd2' solves this 
problem but is this normal sysinst behavior?
