Parent article: The return of devfs
This devtmpfs is not need to boot fast. Really.
This is a workaround for a certain distros crappy mkinitrd basically, and nothing more; if you do the initrd correct (or if you don't use an initrd at all), you don't need this "solution" and you'll even boot faster....
