5	Description:	The /sys/dev tree provides a method to look up the sysfs
6			path for a device using the information returned from
7			stat(2).  There are two directories, 'block' and 'char',
8			beneath /sys/dev containing symbolic links with names of
9			the form "<major>:<minor>".  These links point to the
10			corresponding sysfs path for the given device.
11	
12			Example:
13			$ readlink /sys/dev/block/8:32
14			../../block/sdc
15	
16			Entries in /sys/dev/char and /sys/dev/block will be
17			dynamically created and destroyed as devices enter and
18			leave the system.
