All reports of mknod-in-maintainer-script for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:
Maintainer scripts must not create device files directly. They should call MAKEDEV instead.
If mknod is being used to create a FIFO (named pipe), use mkfifo instead to avoid triggering this tag.
Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.6 (Device files) for details.
