You left out the sentence where I said "this is only for vfs_syscalls_43.c". 
Look at your /usr/include/sys/stat.h and tell me, please, what is used in
place of dev_t's in struct stat43.... 

        u_int16_t st_dev;               /* inode's device */
        u_int16_t st_rdev;              /* device type */

SunOS executables use the stat43.  So does a couple other emulations with
older binaries.
