__xmknod -- make block or character special file


int __xmknod(int ver,
            __const char *path,
            __mode_t mode,
            __dev_t *dev);


ver must be 1 or the behavior is undefined.

__xmknod(1, path, mode, dev) has the same specification as mknod(path, mode, dev).

Note that the format of dev_t is not the same as the argument that the kernel syscall uses.

__xmknod is not in the source standard; it is only in the binary standard.
