But why?!

I do not know what your vservers are doing, but this simply looks like a
mine-deep penetrating security issue...

Besides, still ignoring that tcptty thingy, which I think is a ulimit
problem, if you are using vs2.0 and namespaces are enabled (default),
you will also need to mount using the vserver's namespace:

vnamespace -e <vserver's xid> mount --bind /dev /vservers/$2/dev

Or use the vservers fstab.
