MAKEDEV is run from init(8), as "MAKEDEV -MM init".  I think it would be
reasonable for most ports to arrange for "MAKEDEV init" to be the same as
"MAKEDEV all".  It might even be OK for the "init" target to disappear,
and for init to run "MAKEDEV -MM all".  But I don't think it should be
MAKEDEV's job to guess that it should do "MAKEDEV all" when it was asked
to do "MAKEDEV init".
