 Yes, you're right, I tried with MAKEDEV and MAKEDEV.local in /dev and  
 it work as expected.
 
 I've no longer the /dev of the system before my NetBSD 5 upgrade to  
 check if I had MAKEDEV in /dev but I don't remember that it was the  
 case.
 Also from http://www.netbsd.org/~jschauma/netbsd-solidstate.html it  
 seems that it was working even without MAKEDEV before.
 
  From what I see in the CVS, a warning has been added to -current 
(http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/src/sbin/init/init.c.diff?r1=1.97&r2=1.98&f=h
 
 ) to warn when MAKEDEV is not found.
 This is a good news to understand with the panic comes.
 
 I guess the case can be closed. Sorry for the trouble
