    I tested this with the latest master and it does work but it must
    be enabled in /etc/ttys.
getty does indeed work, but usually you can't log in because it's stuck 
on ttyhup wait channel, or because login gets stuck on ttydcd.
Observed behaviour indicates it's a race in the kernel. Before devfs 
everything worked fine.
