    Subjectlanana: Add major/minor entries for PPC QE UART devices

    (Email to bounces, so I'm sending this to lkml instead.)

    I'm working on a UART device driver for the Freescale PowerPC QUICCEngine, which
    is a replacement for the CPM. Since the QE is basically "CPM v3", and you can't
    have a CPM and a QE on the same board, I figure that they can share the same
    minor numbers.

    I've attached a patch that adds these entries to major number 204. Please not
    that there's a small typo for /dev/ttyCPM5, and I've fixed that in the patch as

    Please let me know if my proposal/patch is acceptable, and if not, what changes
    you want me to make. Thanks.


    Fixed a typo with /dev/ttyCPM5. Added entries for /dev/ttyQE0-3. The QE
    is a replacement for the CPM, so they can share the same minor numbers.
