I've gone ahead and installed linux_base-8 on 6.0 RELEASE. What I'd like
to know is how are devices handled? For example, and this is crucial to
my application, is it possible for a linux application to talk to /dev/st0,
and if so how is this accomplished with no /compat/linux/dev directory and
with devfs in operation?
