Comments just on the user/kernel api and how it interacts with the
driver model. Not on the "real" functionality of this code :)

Why a max?

Move to use xarray now so that Matthew doesn't have to send patches
converting this code later :)

It also allows you to drop the mutex.

Global variables?

Why does this matter? release should only be called on the way out of
here, no need to do anything as nothing else can be called, right?

release shouldn't be needed from what I can tell.

Good job in forcing the reserved fields to be 0!

No max value checking for .len? Can you really ask for anything?

Why is compat_ioctl even needed?

Again, xarray.

But I will ask you to back up, why need a major number at all? Why not
just use the misc subsystem? How many of these are you going to have
over time in a "normal" system? How about a "abnormal system"?

We have seen people running Android in "containers" such that they
needed binderfs to handle huge numbers of individual android systems
running at the same time. Will this api break those systems if you have
a tiny maximum number you an allocate?

No parent? Can't hang this off of anything? Ok, having it show up in
/sys/devices/virtual/ is probably good enough.

EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL() please? For core stuff like this it's good.

Overall, looks sane, the comments above are all really minor.

Wrong license for a uapi .h file :(
