| I'm no kernel hacker so I am little hesitant to speak; however,
| I'm looking at kdev_t.h from the linux-2.5.3-pre1 source.
| The type of kdev_t has changed recently from a scalar type to a
| structured type. Should macro definitions such as MINOR(dev) also
| be revised to be consistent with the "new" kdev_t ?
Macros to use kdev_t also changed.
| Something like:
| #define MINOR(dev) ((unsigned int) ((dev.value) & MINORMASK))
| rather than
| #define MINOR(dev) ((unsigned int) ((dev) & MINORMASK))
| Then usage of the MINOR() macro remains unchanged.
Nope, use major() and minor() instead [although I prefer
the kmajor() and kminor() patch].
item 7, bullet 3, which points to an email from one Linus Torvalds
about the kdev_t change.
