SubjectObtaining new Device Numbers
Hi All,

According to Documentation/devices.txt to request new major / numbers, all you
should have to do is get ahold of H. Peter Anvin.

Does anybody know if he is still doing this? Perhaps has he passed this duty
on to someone else? It would appear he isn't answering requests mailed to

I'm trying to get the major / minor number issues resolved for the Linux port
to the IBM AS/400 aka iSeries. We have released our first set of patches and
before we put out the next set we'd like to get this nailed down as we're using
bogus major / minor numbers that we just grabbed out of mid-air... obviously not
the right thing.

For those interested in the patches, take a gander to

Thanks much for any info!
