There is an emerging standard in the Linux Standards Base. It currently
says (as I interpret it) that there should be these user:group entries
It then says that UID and GID for root shall be 0 and that UID and GID
for bin shall be 1. Other numbers are not specified. That's all I know.
LSB is rather new. MAKEDEV is rather old and not expected to survive
the introduction of kernel 2.4. Thus I suspect any attempt to match
MAKEDEV's users and groups to the LSB is probably only of transitory use.
