It doesn't create the /dev entry:

# ls -l /dev/xvda*
brw-r----- 1 root disk 202, 1 Jul 26 06:11 /dev/xvda1
brw-r----- 1 root disk 202, 2 Jul 26 06:10 /dev/xvda2
brw-r----- 1 root disk 202, 3 Jul 26 06:10 /dev/xvda3

I will try manually creating minor device 0 sometime, but not on a
production system!
