Make one of these dynamic and do not have them both control the lifespan
of the structure.

You need to do something, as no one can mess with a module parameter
easily. Why do you need them at all, shouldn't it "just work" properly
with no need for userspace interaction?

Ah. Then how about using the same MAJOR for all of these, and just have
the first minor (0) be your control? That happens for other device
types (raw, loop, etc.). Or just document this really well please, as
it was not obvious what you were doing here.
