Changing NR_PTYS should work with the code unmodified (well, you may
have to change the mapping from pty numbers to kdev_t's but that's
really unrelated); to make the pty's dynamic you'd have to do a little
more work, but the changes should be trivial (you would want to change
the inodes array to something dynamic, as well as change the tests
against NR_PTYS).

Nothing that amounts to rocket science.
