You are quite right. I am an idiot. I think the simplest way to fix
this is stop trying to overload the 'minor' argument to dm_create, and
instead have a seperate dm_create_with_minor function call.


int dm_create(struct dm_table *table, struct mapped_device **md);
int dm_create_with_minor(unsigned int minor, struct dm_table *table,
                         struct mapped_device **md);

I'm testing a patch for this now (with LVM this time, not just
dmsetup), and will post to the list in the next hour.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

- Joe
