Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

+ Device File System (devfs) ToDo List
+ Richard Gooch <>
+ 3-JUL-2000
+This is a list of things to be done for better devfs support in the
+Linux kernel. If you'd like to contribute to the devfs, please have a
+look at this list for anything that is unallocated. Also, if there are
+items missing (surely), please contact me so I can add them to the
+list (preferably with your name attached to them:-).
