SubjectRe: [patchset 3/3 -2.6.18-rc1] pc8736x_gpio: fix re-modprobe errors - fix/finish cdev-init
3 - pc-init-fix-chrdev-region-rollup

- Switch from register_chrdev() to (register|alloc)_chrdev_region().
- use a cdev. This was intended for original patchset, but was
overlooked.
We use a single cdev for all pins (minor device-numbers), as gleaned
from cs5535_gpio,
and in contrast to whats currently done in scx200_gpio (which I'll fix
soon)
