I saw from the mail that it
is devpts_pty_new() that creates the appropriate enteries in /dev/pts,
but I just can not see how it do this.

and I also find
saying that
"The device nodes in /dev/pts can be automatically generated by the
devpts virtual filesystem".

Could someone explain how the enteries in /dev/pts/ is created?

Thanks a lot.
