Subject[PATCH] remove DEVFS_FL_AUTO_DEVNUM
Remove the DEVFS_FL_AUTO_DEVNUM flag that makes devfs_register()
allocate a dev_t for it's caller.

Rationale: while dynamic major/minors are a good idea, devfs is the
wrong layer to do it because all code relying on it would break with
out devfs.

There were three users (outside the SN1 IRIX compat layer that needs
a large rewrite for 2.5/2.6 anyway):

drivers/media/dvb/dvb-core/dvbdev.c:
only used under CONFIG_DVB_DEVFS_ONLY, which isn't exposed in
the kernel configurator, removed that code.
drivers/media/radio/miropcm20-rds.c:
driver was devfs-only. Add a miscdevice with dynamic minor
allocation.

keep using the old major and minor numbers. Devfs will take whatever
values are given for major&minor and pass them onto userspace.

-Alternatively, you can have devfs choose unique device numbers for
-you. When you register a character or block device using
-devfs_register you can provide the optional
-DEVFS_FL_AUTO_DEVNUM flag, which will then automatically allocate a
-unique device number (the allocation is separated for the character
-and block devices).
-
This device number is a 16 bit number, so this leaves plenty of space
for large numbers of discs and partitions. This scheme can also be
used for character devices, in particular the tty devices, which are
