not true... devfs can be set up to use "compatibility" symlinks where
it preserves the old kernel naming scheme with symlinks to the new
locations.  for example, on a debian machine, the switch to devfs is as
easy as compiling a kernel with devfs support and apt-get installing
devfsd (all my machines at home run devfs).
