Yeah, I forgot to apply the fix to this one, sorry.

Here it is:

Subject: [PATCH] fix current BK tree compilation with devfs enabled

Not that I care for devfs, but there was at least one report on lkml.

I tried to also put the devfs_handle_t under CONFIG_DEVFS_FS, but the
devfs wrappers require it. And yes, I'm seriously pissed that devfs
puts wordsize objects everywhere even if not enabled.
