Yep, this was very simple to hit, running with /dev inside of XFS appears
to be part of it - I am running on an ide root, not sure how that factors
in to it. I suspect a problem in dev handling inside XFS, so a workaround
would be to run devfs with the mount at boot time option (ok I know that is
not always an option) or a non-xfs /dev directory in some other way. If you
have redhat 7 devfs is not actually painful to get going.
