Just add an entry in your CVSROOT/modules file to identify dev1/sub1/
as a module in its own right.

    dev1        path/to/dev1
    sub1        path/to/dev1/sub1

Now you can do a "cvs checkout sub1" and get just the subtree
(but that probably isn't useful by itself).

No need.

Just add a definition of dev2, with sub1 as an amperstand module.

    dev1        path/to/dev1
    sub1        path/to/dev1/sub1
    dev2        path/to/dev2       &sub1
