    OK, thanks. So it looks like we stick with

    http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/2.4/2.4.18-pre2/tty_name.patch

    Which just puts %d's at the end of all the device names in the
    non-devfs case.

    I'll have another go at that patch, check for missed drivers,
    then send it out again. OK?
