Hi, I did all my work on the actual device as I was only experimenting,
but I did produce a working device that used mdev to create /dev
removing udev completely.

I will attach the mdev.conf I used.

Poky has some interesting enhancements to boot speed by using udev in a
slightly different way. I believe their figures for improvement after
first boot are similar to mine using udev.
