Nope, afraid not; neither before nor after. What happens is that, in
each of the case I tried (usb mouse, audio card, pc speaker), after I
write "add" to the uevent file, a new directory will have appeared in
the folder, e.g. mouse0 or input/input5/event5, which will be the one
containing a dev file. (Of course by then there's also a corresponding
syslink in /sys/dev/char).

Sorry, not sure how to avoid using a big hammer...
