Not to mention that it might end up being a pointer, or go away (to be
replaced with kchrdev_t, kblkdev_t or something like that.)

*** kdev_t does not belong in user space or on disk; it is a kernel
transient object. ***

Personally I can't believe this code went into the mainstream kernel
*at all* with this wart in it.
