OK, I've done some more research on my own, and it would appear that a
non-udev /dev/console and /dev/null must exist before udev is started,
because udev is started in "user" land (thus u-dev), and thus before
init starts. So init needs these device files to exist a priori.
The question that still remains is why are they not showing up with my
custom package set? Who is repsonsible for creating the a priori
/dev/console that init uses, and what would prevent that from
Anyone have any clues they can throw my way?
