    Not true, you can get new numbers.

    Don't put things that should be in /dev into /proc, not allowed.

    No. Actually, put it in sysfs, and then udev will create your /dev node
    for you automatically. And in sysfs you can put your other stuff
    (version, etc.) which is the proper place for it.
