I don't see why having forgotten to mknod /dev/xdevcfg would lock up the
system.  When you "cat > /dev/xdevcfg" and that device file does not
exist yet, you happen to create a regular file in its place.  This
should be harmless.  (This file, just like the device file, disappears
when the system is rebooted because it has /dev on tmpfs.)
