This shows that you don't understand how udev is working. Read the
appropriate section from lfs-6.0 one more time. Also you should not use
devfs, neither in kernel, nor on command line for kernel. 

Important.  udev creates all devices anew at the kernel startup. First
it mounts ramfs on /dev (thus hiding any devices you created before) and
then it creates new devices based on the functionality available in the
kernel.  If this process fails for any reason, then you end up without
devices and nothing can be mounted.

Minds, like parachutes, function best when open
