Erm... I wasn't talking about the DESIRED state of affairs!
I was talking about the CURRENT state of affairs. OK?
The fact still remains that most of the places which a have pointed
out just need the minor nibble of whatever bits you pass to them.
Apparently nobody on this list here blabbering about a new improved
minor/major space didn't actually take the time and looked into
all those places where the kernel is CURRENTLY replying in minor/major
array enumeration. They are TON's of them. The most ugly are RAID
an all those MD LVW and whatever stuff as well as abused minor number
spaces as replacements of differnt majors.
At least you have admitted that you where the one responsible for
the design of this MESS.
