To add to Alan's list (one of his own that slipped through the cracks)
is that the stuff like mouse_register() and friends (in mouse.c) should
be changed to misc_chrdev_register() or whatever. That way drivers can
snarf up a minor from major ten instead of wasting a major. (They
still can now, but it looks stupid calling mouse_register() when your driver
has *nothing* to do with mice.) If you don't follow me, then have a quick
scan of softdog.c and you will see what it is all about. According to
"devices.txt" there are already six non-mice entries on major 10, and
only six mice devices on major 10 (not counting the amiga ones). Hrmmmm...
Paul.
