I do, its at git://github.com/jimc/linux-2.6.git chrdev-pub1 branch

For you, I think there are 3 patches of interest
1 - adds new call, deprecates old.
if you build with this applied and CONFIG_ENABLE_WARN_DEPRECATED=y
you should get a deprecated warning
2 - reimplements alloc_chardev_region() with register_chardev_ids()
your driver may be using register_chardev_region(), if so this is uninteresting.
3 - patch that adapts your scsi parts.
