I just tried this from the userspace:

    error: cannot open /dev/null.log: Permission denied

The function open_log_file apparently adds a *.log suffix before opening
the file. Assuming that you tried this as root, you probably won't have
gotten an error message. Could you double-check that no /dev/null.log
