Well, /dev/log is normally a unix socket to syslog, and /var/log is a
symlink to /tmp/, so making it point to /var/log (E.G. /tmp) doesn't
make much sense.

With that said, unless you are using a static /dev instead of devtmpfs
(which you really shouldn't be doing), it doesn't matter as devtmpfs
puts a ramdisk on top of /dev.
