The reason for this is that the shell is trying to get the file size by opening it and seeking to the end (opening /dev/null is actually not supported, it is not a unix-like /dev/null, it stands for a NULL device).

This should be solved by implementing the fstat() operation in VFS.

OK, to be precise, fstat() won't solve this at all. What we specifically need in this case is stat().
