Here is a patch that changes MAKEDEV to:

- not include "{i,o,}pty" on any arch in the "all" target
- mount a ptyfs on top of a tmpfs /dev if the latter is created and
  populated due to missing /dev/console by init

Under what circumstances is it useful for MAKEDEV to mount ptyfs? Why can't we rely on other code to mount it later?

Can we at least make this conditional on the "-M" flag being specified twice, as happens when init(8) invokes MAKEDEV?
