SYSCTL_XXX still wants dev_t, not cdev_t

:With the recent renaming of the kernel's dev_t to cdev_t the dev_t type 
:sysctl variables, namely, "kern.dumpdev" and "machdep.consdev", have 
:disappeared (at least these two are affected). Please consider the below 
:modifications to bring them back again.

    That's definitely a bug, but I think I am going to rename them to
    udev_t instead of dev_t and I'll adjust the sysctl code to recognize
    'udev_t' as well as 'dev_t'.
