zero and null regression?

After upgrading a 6-CURRENT machine from a 5 day old kernel to one cvsuped 
just a few hours ago, special files zero and null created through mknod no 
longer works.

# mknod zerotest c 2 12
# chmod 666 zerotest
# cat zerotest > /dev/null
cat: zerotest: Socket operation on non-socket

Could this be related to the vfs stuff Poul-Henning Kamp is working with?
