This is more for folks where the above doesn't apply.  If you create a
directory with only the device nodes (and hard links to sockets) that
you need, you could the use a loopback file system to place the
/dev/log replicant where you need it (like on a giant disk, and not on
your tiny root partition).

I have never been able to get Linux to mount a directory as a file
system successfully, but under Solaris (and maybe others) this should
work just fine.
