SubjectQuestion: multiple major numbers - one driver

I have a need for more than 256 minor numbers. I could add some
more major numbers, thus getting the number of majors * 256.
I would like to have only device driver loaded to handle the
multiple majors.
I thoought of the following things that would have to be changed:

1) make the new device descriptors
2) add the new majors to the register_blkdev and unregister
system calls
3) process multiple CURRENT q's when receiving a request
from the block device layer. Each unique major has
a seperate incoming q.

Does any know of anything else that would prevent me from doing
this ??
