I am not sure. Since the init created /dev tmpfs is an emergency
measure, it can't realy rely on the presence of ptyfs. And before we go
to more magic (like querying presence of compat_bsdpty or something),
it is probably better to just create some ptys.

We can, however, use a modified MAKEDEV script for install cdroms (and then
use ptyfs).
