Kernel in dmesg identifies the device like /dev/sdf, doing
mknod /dev/sdf b 8 80; mknod /dev/sdf1 b 8 81; mount /dev/sdf1 /mnt
solves the problem. So definitely the drive is at sdf. It looks to me
like there is some built in limit in udev for number of "scsi" devices
in this case or something.

Hmm, I have no idea.  We’re using a relatively old version of udev,
maybe that will be solved when upgrading.

OK, I found it. The /dev/* files present there are just some static version nodes. udev needs a /dev to be mounted as devtmpfs. This helps

deco stop udev
mount -t devtmpfs dev /dev
deco start udev

then /dev is correctly populated.
