When I wanted to create devices from a package I stumbled upon a couple
of problems with the makedevs program. Most notable was that it failed
to set the correct uid/gid for devices created as part of a block (i.e.,
with a count > 0).

PATCH v2: And now with Signed-off-by lines, as requested.

PATCH v3: Also made count for blocks of devices behave as a count rather
than the end (noticed after looking a makedevs.c from BusyBox).

PATCH v4: Added a Signed-off-by to the fifth patch. Will only resend it
as the other patches have already been accepted.
The following changes since commit efb8a460d2a977dbd481a0650fba8eb637c65bec:

  package.bbclass: Fix sources contents (2013-05-14 08:52:47 +0300)
