[modversions.h is magically included by the kernel for you when its in
kernel if you haven't worked that one out yet]

static ?

Oh random tip

if(current->need_resched)
schedule();

will just give up the CPU when you are out of time

Think about open/close at the same moment or SMP - the watchdog drivers all
had this problem and now do

unsigned long opened = 0;

if(test_and_set_bit(0, &opened))
return -EBUSY;

clear_bit(0, &opened)

[this generates atomic operations so is always safe]

BUG() may be better - it can't happen so BUG() will get a backtrace
and actually get it reported 8)

Can go (you now use no_llseek)


Basically except for the open/close one I'm now just picking holes.
For the device major/minors see http://www.lanana.org.
