 Log Message:
 As discussed at the biginning of last week (June 6 & 7, 2016) on
 tech-kern in messages with a Subject starting [Re:] /dev/sdN -> /dev/sdN[cd]
 and in PR port-amd64/51216 :
 Create bare (no letter suffix) device names (block & raw) that
 refer to the raw device ('c' or 'd' partition as appropriate).
 This commit was delayed waiting to see if there was to be any more
 discussion - there wasn't a lot.
 Caution: this is going to consume 2 more inodes per disc device
 configured, everywhere that devices are configured using MAKEDEV
