I've just started poking around the PR's to try to learn and help out, =
and this one looked like a good first try..
Sure enough, as root on 9.0 -CURRENT I can "rm /dev/null" and it does =
unlink and is missing. However, I just recreate it with mknod /dev/null =
c 0 6 .. the behavior is identical on 8.2-RELEASE.
Am I missing something here? Is there some kind of new default behavior =
that should be implemented here?=20=
