That's basically what I was worried about.

That's just waiting for a bug report when somebody's software doesn't play nice
with "2100..2199,2700..2799" type ranges.  Agreed the kernel probably won't need
a lot more, but we might want to make sure we have bigger ranges available for
userspace.  Maybe make each userspace range 1K wide rather than 100?  (Yes,
I know that's just putting the Y2K problem off to 2038 ;)
