This is a script that will make a static device node (for example, /dev/video_static) from an existing device node (for example /dev/video0) by finding the UDEV information for the device and making a symlink rule.

This is very useful for cards/devices that change on a reboot and you need to talk to the device node, for example in MythTV.

Usage:
 udev.py /dev/existing_device /dev/new_device_point
