This feature was added when devfs was added - devfs would create the node
(with the right major&minor number) automatically. I assume udev has something

As a worst case option, the module can simply report which number it got in
dmesg, and then one can create the node by hand.

Infinite complexity begets infinite beauty.
Infinite precision begets infinite perfection.
