If I may add, on modern 'udev' based systems the /dev is not a real partition, it is created ( need verification of this part) and populate by udev and the device drivers as they load in a manner somewhat like the way /proc is created by a /proc enabled kernel.
This should be true for systems native, (non kernel based) virtual, or embedded.
