udev is the best solution here. It works with read-only root as it

Thanks for the suggestion and I'll look into it. As for now, my system
works well without udev, and I just wanted to test kvm without the
"dynamic" /dev/kvm feature if possible.

Would it be possible to create /dev/kvm once and let it stay there
permanently? How about a switch for non-udev system?

Greg, /dev/kvm is a MISC_DYNAMIC_MINOR device. Is there any way of using it without udev? Should I allocate a static number?
