It has a /dev filesystem but exporting it doesn't work. Yes, user and

Micro$soft trained robots located an ocean away who will only allow
installation of Redmond-blessed add-ons.
I'm not pushing it as a solution but it is a free way to have a mount a
NFS-style filesystem on an embedded linux board. I believe I did
mention that I disliked recommending it but to deny it exists would be
