Subject[PATCH] dev_t [1/3]
Now that 2.5.65 is out, the next dev_t patch.
It was a bit large and unreadable, so I split it into
three clean pieces. Afterwards, since many people ask
for this, a fourth patch that actually changes the
type of dev_t (not to be applied yet, that is just for
playing).

The first patch is the cdev-kill patch that I sent out
earlier. It is no use having two forms of chardev registration
in the source, and my version of the path of small modifications
does not pass through this version, although the final result
will not be that different. So, kill cdev_cachep, cdev_cache_init,
cdfind, cdget, cdput, inode->i_cdev, struct char_device.
All of this is dead code today.

The second patch removes MAX_CHRDEV.

The third patch polishes linux/major.h.

The fourth patch, not to be applied, changes the type of dev_t.
