Re: [Xen-devel] can't mount root... devfs???

I believe DevFS is officially deprecated in 2.6.  They're looking to replace 
it with udev, which is a userspace daemon that creates device nodes on your 
existing filesystem when it detects and identifies devices using mechanisms 
including the new sysfs.  Amongst other things, this allows for more flexible 
naming policy for device nodes.

It is still in 2.6 but I think they want to get rid of it eventually.
