Description of problem:
sysreport collects device nodes if present from $DNSDIR/dev and
/proc/scsi/qla2300 as a consequence of collecting the /proc/scsi and $DNSDIR/
recursively. This is a problem because it means you need to be root to unpack
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run sysreport on a system with qla2300 or a bind chroot set up
2. Try to unpack the sysreport as an unprivileged user
tar fails trying to create device nodes
sysreports should be collected such that they can be unpacked by non-root users

don't include any block or char device nodes in the sysreport
This feature is now included in sysreport-1.4.2-3 from, which will be added in
next comming RHEL5 release.
In my opinion it's not worth to add it in RHEL3 update.
