[PATCH] create corresponding /dev node for /dev/root creation

For iscsi install work, current partition dev nodes are being created
under /tmp rather than /dev, like /tmp/sda5. In short this causes the
os.stat() in mkDevRoot to fail.

So, create the corresponding /dev entry prior to the creation of

I think in this case the creation of the /tmp node is done in the call to
makeDevInode via the PartitionDevice setupDevice method, but I did not
verify that; changing it to default to /dev could fix this particular
case, but it looks like there might be other cases that could still break.
