Hmmm, I kind of like what you're doing there, which probably means
everyone else will hate it ;)

Since you're doing this work, is it possible to construct the
etc.platform/MAKEDEV files from the conf.c files ?  That's one more
thing which requires a manual update when adding/removing a driver
from a port.  Having the drivers create the files in /dev, themselves
or via some auto-magic function, would be the best but there's a
large amount of resistence to that, problems with various solutions
