I'm working on porting a driver from FreeBSD to NetBSD and have found the 
kernel API for creating devices in /dev/ very difficult to use.

I want to be able to clone, create and delete devices. Therefore I want to 
implement a file system similar to FreeBSD's "devfs".

Has anyone done that already, and is there some code I can get?
