Some years ago, we here just reverted to large-ish set of 'static' pre-made 
device-files via MAKEDEV &c, along with automounting, and a few other 
old(-ish/mature)-but-works-and-still-relevant methods. It just works.

((But then, we also sat-out all the *kit, grub, gnome, udev, sysvinit, &c&c 
see-sawing: read about them, sure, understood them, sure, but rely on them for 
work? No chance.))

((As for the linux kernel having a sysd-wrapper increasingly slipped around it 
via a cabal of specious, solipsistic, untrustworthy, deceitful, &c&c 'programmers' 
from, interestingly, a rather small and particular geographical spread, ... well, 
I won't get started, and besides one doesn't need to: either Linux will see 
through them and remain worthwhile; or it won't see through them and become 
not-worthwhile. Dead simple.))
