    Look at the mknod utility.
    The user types major,minor.
    The system call uses dev_t.
    This means that user space needs to be able to combine
    major,minor into a dev_t.

    It is not a good idea to require of mknod that it knows
    about the filesystem the node is going to be created on.

    [In other words: we invent something, and what we invent is
    encoded in <sys/sysmacros.h>. It cannot depend on fs type.]
