Dear all,

after upgrading from 5.3 to 5.4-Stable
I get 

DEVFS Overflow table with 65538 entries allocated

I already doubled the values in the kernel config via

options         NDEVFSINO=2050
options         NDEVFSOVERFLOW=65538

with no avail. The error message pops up if a user
(fails to) start ppp but not if root starts ppp. Any pointers?

Cheers Tom
