Sorry, I think it's called 'mdev' and is part of busybox.

A whole separate package for a tool that reimplements 'vim -b' mode?
That seems pointless, sorry.

At least find a package that people use

Bug 398049 can serve well enough. The maintainer said, "This should no
longer be an issue once we have everyone with separate /usr using an
initramfs." [1]

The official method is to build busybox with the "mdev" USE flag. That
is the only way that virtual/dev-manager recognizes it, and doesn't try
to pull in udev, instead. From the ebuild...

RDEPEND="|| (
sys-fs/udev
sys-apps/busybox[mdev]
sys-fs/devfsd
sys-fs/static-dev
sys-freebsd/freebsd-sbin
)"

TOOT!!! (blowing my own horn). See http://www.waltdnes.org/mdev/ for
instructions on replacing udev with mdev for simple Gentoo systems.
Hopefully more info will start arriving, allowing more complex systems
to work with mdev.

With more people getting interested, the project has been moved to
wiki format https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Mdev to allow more people to
contribute.
