Well it doesn't use a new major, does it?

+#define DEVICE_MAJOR 204
+#define DEVICE_MINOR 40

Which is:

204 char Low-density serial ports
0 = /dev/ttyLU0 LinkUp Systems L72xx UART - port 0
...
32 = /dev/ttyDB0 DataBooster serial port 0
...
39 = /dev/ttyDB7 DataBooster serial port 7

205 char Low-density serial ports (alternate device)


which seems reasonable, I suppose, but a patch to devices.txt is needed
please.
