__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 of __xmknod 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.
