If udev has finally stabilized, then possibly a cleaned up version that 
doesn't block copy its own version of libsysfs into its sources.  (What is 
the _point_ of having a shared library that isn't shared but that you copy 
the source code of into your tarball???)  I'd have to look.

But that's a separate issue.  Busybox doesn't have the linux kernel, C 
library, or an ssh server built into it, but that doesn't mean we can't have 
opinions about what we _do_ include.  And devfs went straight from 
"experimental" to obsolete without ever actually having a stable release
