    Looks good a couple of minor nits.

    1. The function should not be inline, since it is in no way performance
    critical. The compiler will probably inline it anyway.

    2. dev does not have to be initialized since it is assigned a few
    lines later. Most programmers are trained now to always initialize
    variables, but often it is unnecessary.

    3. The name next_dev() is a little generic; maybe a better name.
