wvdial and devfs

Hi all,

BLFS 5.0, devfs, no devfsd, no compatibility inodes in /dev

I installed wvdial and run wvdialconf. wvdialconf is not able to find
my Hagenuk Speed Dragon on /dev/tts/1. But it is known that the Speed
Dragon needs to be spoken to in a fixed baud rate. So there might be
two possible problems with different solutions:

- wvdial is not working with the devfs and needs a /dev/ttyS1 symlink
  or a patch or such.

- i need to use setserial to set the baud rate to the appropriate

(BTW: it would be fine if in BLFS such things as setserial or fbset
would occur)

Any hints?
