That's (hex) 0x2101. In Documentation /devices.txt, we see:

33 block Third IDE hard disk/CD-ROM interface
0 = /dev/hde Master: whole disk (or CD-ROM)
64 = /dev/hdf Slave: whole disk (or CD-ROM)

Partitions are handled the same way as for the first
interface (see major number 3)

So device 33 (hex 21) is /dev/hde and 0x01 is partition 1 == hde1.
