As far as I understood, /dev/console is needed as standard input/output 
error used by pre-init (you should/may get an error if /dev/console does 
not exist). Without that file you won't see error messages from pre-init 
and the system hangs.

/dev/null is used to discard data directed to it.

Hope, I do not told crap...
