The exact devnode (in this case char major 254) will vary, as it's
dynamically assigned by the kernel, thus based on module load order and what
else requested a dynamic devnode.  The afacli script (which calls afacli.bin
later) first sets up /dev/afa0 based on what's found in /proc/devices.  If
you think the node is wrong, delete it and afacli *should* recreate it
properly, else run /dev/MAKEDEV.afa to create it.
