    I just did a 2.6.10 kernel today and I love it.......probably b/c i used love sources but anyways:

    File Systems --> Pseudo filesystems --> /dev file system support _ | _ --> Automatically mount at boot Enjoy!

    Keep in mind devfs is rather obsolete, I strongly reccomend using udev instead. Just do:
    Code:
    emerge udev

    To run udev you need to emerge hotplug, as well. Also there are some settings to change in your rc.conf. As always, the gentoo documentation section is more than sufficient.
