    Why don't you get rid of the global raw_devices array instead?

    I suppose if you embed the struct cdev in raw_device_data and
    register it during RAW_SETBIND separately for each raw device
    instead of globally at raw_init time, you can support any number
    of devices while making the code smaller and simpler. I suppose
    you can even remove the raw_mutex then.
