Alright, thanks.  What about the /proc/devices one?  Would adding an
entry help?  I'm kind of lost /proc/devices.  It's now mostly
non-functional legacy stuff we've been carrying around.  Is it
deprecated or do we intend to keep it around forever?

Ooh.. which also reminds me that I forgot to reserve the major number w/
lanana.  Will do that.

Thanks.
