Subject[PATCH] Partial devfs support for raw IO devices
Hi,
I hacked together this quick patch to make the "master" raw IO device
appear in devfs. It seems odd that I need *both* devfs_register...()
calls but the first one only seems to make the entry appear in
/proc/devices.

The logical corollary to this patch is to make raw IO devices
magically appear in devfs as they are bound to block devices. However,
this presents namespacing issues. Would it be reasonable to assume
that they should appear in a subdirectory called /dev/rawIO, e.g.

/dev/rawIO/1
/dev/rawIO/2 ... etc?

devfsd could then provide compatibility links.

Anyway, first things first :-)
Cheers,
Chris
