In netbsd-4, you can increase the size of the mfs /dev by changing the
definition of NINODE in src/sbin/init/init.c.  You might be able to come
up with a way to use ifdefs to do this for the version of init that's
embedded in the ramdisk that's embedded in the relevant INSTALL kernel,
without also doing it for versions of init used for other purposes.

In -current, the mfs or tmpfs /dev is created by MAKEDEV, not by init,
and it is automatically sized according to the number of devices.
