    What we really need is devfs.  Device cloning itself is really easy, but
    to do it right we want a direct file descriptor device interface so
    the device can be assigned to the (private) file pointer instead of to
    the (shared) vnode.   devfs is needed because when we bypass the vnode
    the access and modified times will no longer get updated for devices
    in a normal UFS based /dev filesystem.
