emu10k1 gameport?

I can see it go through in dmesg,

$ dmesg
gameport0: Emu10k1 Gameport at 0xdff0 size 8 speed 877 kHz

but I can't find it!

$ od /dev/js1
od: /dev/js1: No such device

$ od /dev/js2
od: /dev/js2: No such device

$ od /dev/js3
od: /dev/js3: No such device

I have a super-nintendo-type-controller plugged into it which works when I boot windoze, but I work on linux and if I could slack off and play street fighter 2 all day on zsnes, then my life would be complete.

any suggestions?
