Hi to all,
here is a new patch for bb's devfsd. The news are:

1) Size reduction for the basic setup with no options compiled in from :
     text        data     bss     dec       hex   filename
    10591     392      543    11526   2d06 devfsd.o
    rw-r--r--    1 root     root        18536 Dec 18 21:52 devfsd.o

    text        data     bss     dec        hex  filename
    9303      392      543    10238    27fe devfsd.o     
    rw-r--r--    1 root     root        16528 Dec 18 22:02 devfsd.o

   With this setup you should not expect much output from devfsd
    ( just at start or with -v) and if some error occurs it only exits 1.
   To have more output enable:  " Increases logging (and size)" (+1568 b).

2) The option "Adds function names to program output" was removed from config menu
    and now to enable debug output you can use bb's standard option:              
    "Build BusyBox with Debugging symbols".                         
    Be careful as with this option enabled a lot of data are outputted to /dev/log and/or to stderr.

3) A new option: "Enables the -fg and -np option" was added to config menu  (+128 b).

BTW: option "Adds support for MODLOAD keyword in devsfd.conf"  adds 268 b.

4) The following keywords in devsfd.conf are supported:

   But only if they are written UPPERCASE!!!!!!!!

5)Help text in usage.h was modified.

6)Something that I have forgotten..........

I've tested this for the last week on my box and it seems to work as expected.

Thanks in advance and please apply.
