[Clfs-support] Missing /dev/null device after udev is started

When booting after chapter 8, I have the following error message, just
after udev has been started:

    cannot open /dev/null

It seems that null is missing in the udev static nodes located in
${CLFS}/lib/udev/devices/null, so I have solved the problem by creating
a null device there:

    mknod ${CLFS}/lib/udev/devices/null -m 0666 c 1 3
