mjf's chimmed in, indicating something will happen w/ devfs. I've been helping him with it, and wedges are the main reason I want devfs.

Yes, I think it makes sense to wait - especially since I found a number of other cases I would have had to deal with.

My thought is something like /dev/wedge/wedgename, and you'd just mount that as normal. There will of course be time to hash this out before we check it in...

I would think perhaps /dev/dk/<wedgename> - since a 'wedge' shows up as a 'dk' device.
