What: devfs
Date: July 2005 (scheduled), finally removed in kernel v2.6.18
Contact: Greg Kroah-Hartman <>
devfs has been unmaintained for a number of years, has unfixable
races, contains a naming policy within the kernel that is
against the LSB, and can be replaced by using udev.
The files fs/devfs/*, include/linux/devfs_fs*.h were removed,
along with the assorted devfs function calls throughout the
kernel tree.
