Probably we can have the similar check as mount_fdesc one, but
MAKEDEV is also used on cross tools to create images with device nodes
(-s: Generate mtree(8) specfile instead of creating devices)
and unlike fdesc compat pty nodes are created outside of /dev/pts,
so I'm afraid checking ptyfs is enough.
