I like the idea of rejecting the latter, but what is the harm of the first
case? If I call something "foo/bar", I'll be surprised to find out that
it's located at /dev/foo_bar... my preference would be for the name to be
rejected completely instead of remapped, if a '/' is to not be allowed,
but that's my own.
