I also found that when init makes an mfs /dev it runs out of inodes.
Any idea how to fix that?  It's not fatal.

That should be tunable in the source for init - look at the section that
creates the mfs. Alternatively you can adjust the relevant MAKEDEV target
so it doesn't create all the devices. Hopefully this has already been fixed
in current :)

actually, comparing the 2.0.3 /sbin/init sources and the 5_beta sources,
it looks like all the nice code to do that is turned off :-(

and replaced with a comment "useful for testing MAKEDEV".
plus, it's a telltail "if 0"

hmm.  I wonder why that was done.

        Ah - my mistake, it was moved to /dev/MAKEDEV - which makes
        much more sense. Its a hell of a lot easier to adjust the
        parameters in the MAKEDEV script than recompile init :)
