Your basic problem if you need to get udev running.  Anything else
doesn't matter, because nothing much is going to work unless udev is
running.  So there you are: look inside that shell script and work out
why it doesn't run, or use the udev commands directly to start udev.

Aha! I hadn't realized that udev depends on having /sys and /proc mounted first. Once I do that, I can start udev and my pipe is created as /dev/vport0p1.

Thanks for you help!
