OK, but the devfs devices are created as...
gumshoe# ls -lt /dev/b*
crw------- 1 bro wheel 23, 1 Sep 24 14:14 /dev/bpf1
crw------- 1 bro wheel 23, 0 Sep 24 14:14 /dev/bpf0
(I changed the owner from root to bro.) If bro is a member of group
wheel, bro still can't read the device. I don't know how to control
the permissions, owner or group of devfs devices. The devfs(5) man
page is useless.
