Greg KH is talking about “udev – devfs done right” (I wonder if rgooch [devfs maintainer] is here… No screams of rage so far, so I guess not)

problems with devfs: implementation (although hch cleaned it up in 2.5) no dynamic allocation

udev – combine /sbin/hotplug (notification whenever a device is added) and sysfs (information about devices) to do device addition/deletion to /dev and naming in user space.

very active crowd participation on this talk… I’m mostly tuned out, writing my notes. After the talk, sat outside, did the gpg identification ritual with a few more people, talked with Behdad, Orna and Pat Gaughen of IBM LTC in real life, and Con Kolivas on IRC. Freaky, the way IRC conversations and real life conversations blend in together.
