In fact, we already know of a single integer value large enough to
contain both major and minor at the same time: the original st_rdev (of
type dev_t) from stat().  We could simply add 'verify(sizeof(dev_t) <=
sizeof(void*))', then reconstruct the st_rdev value by undoing the
decomposition done by the major() and minor() macros.  Or, you could
even tweak patch 1/6 to return st_rdev as a single value instead of
major/minor as two separate values.
