Following our off-line conversation...

I understand your concern, about the misc device and dynamically
updating the misc device structure.

For it is your main point of contention and we do not currently have
a use case for the misc device I propose we just let it go and
rebase on the device design we had in V6 and did not seem to
make any trouble to any one.

We will propose a v9 with the integration of all comment done
so far soon as possible.


Best regards,

Pierre
