   version: 1.21-1 (via apt-get install obnam in Debian Stretch x64)
   
   problem: blockdevice node does not restore well
   
   
   file to backup (ls -l):
   
   brw-r--r-- 1 root   root   1, 2 May  2 22:21 mknod_b
   
   file restored (ls -l):
   
   brw-r--r-- 1 root   root   0, 0 May  2 22:21 mknod_b
   
   ...so while the 'block device' gets backed up & restored, the major and 
   minor are not restored.
   
   Regards,
   
   Rutger.
