Hi Greg,

Thanks a lot for the review!

These two are both used by cdev_device_add(). Looks like I didn't find
any problem. Any suggestions?

You are right. We don't need an atomic here.

OK.

These parameters will be used before the device is created. Or do you
mean add some attributes to the control device?

The misc device is the control device represented by
/dev/vduse/control. Then a VDUSE device represented by
/dev/vduse/$NAME can be created by the ioctl(VDUSE_CREATE_DEV) on this
control device.

The misc device is used for controlling. And VDUSE devices are
allocated in a dynamic chardev range. Or do I need to reserve the
first minor for the control device instead?

Will do it.
