Well, I believe that I first erroneously ran make xconfig without the
ARCH=um option, and then when I later ran make xconfig with ARCH=um,
the CONFIG_DEVFS_FS and CONFIG_DEVFS_MOUNT options were not activated,
and since there's no user interface to set them in xconfig, I entered
into the problem.
This was solved doing:
rm -f .config
make xconfig ARCH=um
Thank you for the help.
By the way, why DEVFS_FS, DEVFS_MOUNT and DEVFS_DEBUG don't appear in
the xconfig options?
