Alright, thanks. What about the /proc/devices one? Would adding an
entry help? I'm kind of lost /proc/devices. It's now mostly
non-functional legacy stuff we've been carrying around. Is it
deprecated or do we intend to keep it around forever?

Ooh.. which also reminds me that I forgot to reserve the major number w/
lanana. Will do that.

Thanks.
