Summary:                    mdev fails to detect directories on sysfs
Description: 
mdev uses struct dirent->d_type to distinguish directories from files.
As far as I see, this field is not covered by any man pages or the like,
besides that man pages warning not to use not mensioned fields.
2.6.x seem to just zero d_type, so I patched mdev.c
to use lstat() -- it works for me.
Patch included, against busybox-1.1.1.

you're probably using uclibc 0.9.28 ... in that case, this is a dupe of Bug
