I think you missed part of my point.
There are lots of different name spaces in the kernel.
Filesystem names. Driver names. Module names.
Some of them may well have trademark related issues.
But the namespace that is the current issue, the namespace of
currently available devices, is not a namespace where I would expect
trademarks to ever come up. It is name space of interfaces and
So I hold that "trademark issues" is not a valid reason to avoid
moving from pure b/c+major+minor names to textual names as the
preferred names for currently available devices.
