/dev (like /proc and /cygdrive) is a virtual directory[*], and is handled
via cygwin1.dll. You can create a /cygdrive/c/cygwin/dev directory, for
tab completion and the like, and even use a batch file I posted earlier to
populate /dev with zero-length files that will show up as devices.
[*] ISTR that there were plans to make /dev a real directory, once mknod()
is fully implemented and functional.
