    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.
