IIRC there were a few files you should add to your static /dev: console,
null, <but i can't remember the rest>

than you need to add /sys to your filsystem, and mount the sysfs there

    mount -t sysfs none /sys

once that is done you can run mdev in scan mode to populate /dev

    mdev -s

that should be it.
