Description Jeremy Katz 2006-03-28 09:07:14 EST
mkblockdevs doesn't create the device nodes for removable devices as it's using
the same /sys/block walking code as device label reading.  We need the removable
device nodes so that the right thing can happen with live CDs (... without the
livecd mkrootdev having to create its own device nodes)

Should be fixed somewhere around 5.0.47-1 .
