This patch changes "dev_t" in the kernel to "struct cdev *"
and is 337K of boredom like:
-static dev_t perfdev;
+static struct cdev *perfdev;
People who maintain cross-platform or cross-version source code in
the kernel, should take a close look at this patch.
If you don't like the way I have done it (which is mostly automated)
you are more than welcome to commit your own patch, all you have
to do is use "struct cdev *" instead of "dev_t", and you can do
that already now.
In about a week or so, I will commit the remaining bits of this
Poul-Henning Kamp | UNIX since Zilog Zeus 3.20
phk at FreeBSD.ORG | TCP/IP since RFC 956
FreeBSD committer | BSD since 4.3-tahoe
Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
