[ELDK] udev/coldplug with eldk 5.2

Hi folks,

I have this issue that is also mentioned in the FAQ[1]: Missing Device Files for Cold Plugged Devices.

However, no /etc/dev.tar is present on my system. I am trying this on a Freescale P1022 -based board loaded with a
Usb drive, a SATA disk and a µSD memory card. I am using ELDK 5.2 with the lsb-sdk and the sato-sdk root file systems.
I can create the device files using mknod just fine, hotplugging works for USB (not SATA or µSD), none of them 
automatically show up after startup. Any idea what's wrong?

Moreover, is there a reason why fsck.ext[234] is not included in any of the larger root file systems? Should I be using
a different approach for creating disc-based root file systems?
