init/do_mounts.c changed in 2.5.48, and booting with devfs
(and without initial ramdisk) has been impossible since then.
I experimented with do_mounts undoing the early devfs mount.
Devfs is mounted later anyway.
Feel free to test, but be warned that I am not an expert
on this part of the kernel. This made 2.5.49 work for
me though. I hope someone can comment on this.
If it isn't "the right way" please tell what is.
