        The following patch fixes some kdev_t compilation errors in

        Note that my fs/devfs/base.c lacks the code that, as of the
last time I checked, prevented compactflash card partitions from
being used with devfs (and was completely unnecessary, and introduced
semantic differences with non-devfs systems). So, I made the diffs
again my old version, which means that patch will probably make you
apply at least one of the stanzas by hand. Also, this means that
the code that prevents compactflash partitions from being used may
not have been ported to kdev_t. However, these changes will at
least be a start for anyone who wants to port the rest.
