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.

Dear Peter;

Agreed, does not make sense to create directories in a mountpoint with devtmpfs.

Just wondering if the device_table.txt needs an entry for the /run directory introduced in 2015-02-rc1

Best regards ,Johan
