SubjectRe: Oops in register_chrdev, what did I do?
Uttered Måns Rullgård <>, spake thus:

> While experimenting a bit with a small kernel module, I got this
> oops. Digging further, I found that /proc/devices had an entry saying
> 248 <NULL>
> which would indicate that I passed a NULL name to register_chrdev(),
> only I didn't. I used a string constant, so I can't see what changed
> it to NULL along the way.
> What am I missing here?
