I'd rather introduce the device() source we were discussing, perhaps even pushing the "readable" 
check in LogReader to LogTransport instances.

The S_ISREG check shouldn't be required now, if someone is using the system() source (which explicitly 
uses follow-freq(0)), or the file driver straight as it has a special case for /dev/klog to make 
follow-freq(0) by default.

The root cause for this bug was in ivykis.

That said, the fix can stay in place, I'll merge that to 3.4, however I think it should go away 
once the LogTransport refactoring happens.
