Question devfs and /dev/loop

Hi, all.

So, I have devfs fully running on a 2.4.20 kernel and everything seems to work. However, I can't seem to get the loop devices (what used to be /dev/loop* and should now be /dev/misc/loop*) to show up. The boot is clean and there are no errors in /var/log/messages wrt this.

Normally, I wouldn't care that much, but the 'make install' of the kernel checks for these (using losetup) prior to running mkinitrd. This means doing dumb things like booting to a different kernel just to make the kernel I'm running in. :-0

Any help would be appreciated.
