    linux-boot: Mount /dev as a devtmpfs from the start.
    Suggested by Petter <address@hidden>
    and Mark H Weaver <address@hidden>.
    Reported by Duncan Keall <address@hidden>.
    Partly fixes <> by populating /dev/mapper
    early enough.
    * gnu/build/linux-boot.scm (mount-essential-file-systems): Mount /dev as
      a devtmpfs.
      (move-essential-file-systems): Add /dev.
      (mount-root-file-system): Mount /rw-root/dev as a devtmpfs instead of
      calling 'make-essential-device-nodes'.
      (boot-system): Remove call to 'make-essential-device-nodes'.
    * gnu/system/file-systems.scm (%devtmpfs-file-system): Remove.
    * doc/guix.texi (File Systems): Adjust accordingly.
