OK, you are adding more stuff other than the miscdevice after all...
still, I don't think that this is a good idea.

I think I had already asked this for a previous version: Why has this
been turned into a miscdevice? (I think my reaction to the answer was
'meh'... but I think more and more that we should not do that.)
