Not undocumented, but with a link to this Wiki entry:
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Mdev

And a BIG FAT WARNING that it's risky, and only suitable for extremely
simple system builds.  It works fine for me on my main dev box and a VM.
I'll know how it works on MIPS when I get that machine properly updated.

Doesn't mean it'll work for everyone, but we're about choice, and we should
at least put a mention in, even if it's a choice that will be rarely taken.
