    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.
