    Would it be fruitful to generalize this to all major numbers, or is char
    10 the only one with this problem? If this problem is widespread, it
    might be a good idea to pass both major and minor number in access
    requests. A good way to implement this efficiently would be to allow the
    use of wildcards in modules.conf, i.e. allow 'alias char-major-14-minor-*
    sound' and so on.
