cp -x will fix that, copying it if it is static and skipping it if it is handled dynamically by devfs or udev.
True, I'm thinking scp for some reason, which is a pain in the arse to copy stuff with dev directories in without taring first, I'm doing far to much ssh work lately.
Although I don't believe scp will copy the bootsector so you would need to reinstall grub/lilo
