Does OS X keep a static list of device files, as Linux used to do in
its pre UDEV days or do device files get built on the fly as they are

UDEV builds device files for things we think of as static (serial &
parallel ports, optical drives, etc) dynamically at boot time and
effectively destroys them when its shut down. This has implications for
access permissions: if you need non-standard access permissions you
can't just set them once: they must either be modified as the device
files are created (by changing the UDEV rules) or immediately after
booting the system (by putting chmod etc. commands
in /etc/rc.d/rc.local).
