Here is a little patch to the Changes document to let people know about
the new Cyclades minor numbers. A customer of our just called with this
problem and I didn't find it mentioned in the Documentation directory.

*** 434,439 ****
--- 434,447 ----
In the future, fdformat might disappear entirely, so get used to
using superformat instead.

+ Cyclades Serial Driver
+ ======================
+
+ The Cyclades driver has been changed so that the minor numbers start
+ at 0 instead of 32 (ie: ttyC0 should be major 19, minor 0 in the 2.0.x
+ kernels while it used to be major 19, minor 32 in the older kernels).
+ You can use mknod to manually fix this or use a newer version of MAKEDEV.
