I can't remember the details right now (other than it's easy to do it
wrong), but basically you need to both filter the existing device
entries and set a ruleset for new entries.

I would suggest simply looking at how the jail rc.d script sets up the
devfs and reading the entire devfs manual page a few times, or even
better simply use the jail rc.d script to set it up.
