    SubjectRe: tty->count(1) != #fd's(2)
    This is definitely a side effect of changing to the new 
    tty major/minors -- sshd did this for the first time right
    after I replaced /dev/tty[p-e][1-f].
    Have you also noticed that you start losing tty's?
    With every ssh connection (and with some other connections,
    but less predicatably), I lose one tty device.
    Watch:$ w
    4:41pm up 11 days, 20:00, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
    ian ttypb nj010c-035.cybe 4:39pm 0.00s 0.14s 0.03s w$

    Currently I've lost ttyp0 through ttypa.
    Not only that, but every time a process (like telnetd) tries
    to allocate a tty, I get one error in syslog for each missing
    tty. (same error as below)

    I'd try to put a fix together, but I don't really understand
    how the kernel handles psuedo-ttys internally.
