To make ourselves look like proper IDE or SCSI devfs nodes would be a
hassle I think, as devfs dictates a different naming schgeme to the
usual Linux style. Since it's dying it's probably not worth it --
especially since the major distros are no longer dependent on it.

Possibly we should disable it in the kernel config to avoid problems.

If the udev/sysfs effort withers and devfs is revived then it might be
worth considering supporting it.
