Summary: mkinitrd: please mount devtmpfs instead of tmpfs as
default
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.3
Version: Factory
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Basesystem
AssignedTo: mvancura@xxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: kasievers@xxxxxxxxxx

The openSUSE 11.2 kernel supports a devfs-like filesystem which can be used
together with udev, and should simplify some cases regarding /dev bootstrapping
and management. Please switch to devtmpfs as the default filesystem for /dev.

If older kernels without devtpmfs should be supported, the current tmpfs mount
could be implemented as a fallback. I don't know if that is needed. All the
mknod calls can be removed, or in case there will be a tmpfs fallback needed,
the mknod calls can be moved inside the fallback only.
