According to the code, this indicates that mknod()
failed (cpukit/src/imfs/ioman.c).  Can you
break at RTEMS_Malloc_Initialize and see how much
heap you are actually allocating?  I suspect that
you don't have much at all like almost 0. :)

This should be one of the first attempts to malloc
memory in the boot sequence.
