OpenVZ doesn't deal with any kind of devices anyways and since it is a
container system, I don't think it will do in the future either. There
only one kernel and the host and the guests and thus no device based
interfaces between them. Why not do away with the "devices" tag for
OpenVZ and rather do something like this:

<network>
<ipaddress>192.168.1.101</ipaddress>
<hostname>fc7-openvz</hostname>
<gateway>192.168.1.1</gateway>
</network>

What do you feel?

Yeah, I will do this.
