This is now fixed in the xeno-unstable.bk repository. A stupid bug :-)

It would be useful to get some more information about this. I don't
know much about devfs (I've always been happer without it) -- quite
possibly there's some bit of required functionality which our virtual
device drivers in xenolinux don't provide.

really ought to work.
