However, neither of the two is started in my current debootstrap 
installed system:

$ grep -E 'devs|mtab' /etc/runlevel.conf
04      -       S               /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh
12      -       S               /etc/init.d/mtab.sh
36      -       S               /etc/init.d/udev-mtab

Yet, I have /dev/shm. 
Does grml-autoconfig or similar starts it automatically? 
Please help.
