Sorry to say this... it's wasted time. I have often said on lfs-discuss that I
am preparing slacks MAKEDEV for LFS, and this includes the number patch too. The
new MAKEDEV is fully in sync with the 2.4.x kernels. Wait some more, I expect to
finish it at the end of this week.

There is no programming language, no matter how structured,
that will prevent programmers from writing bad programs.
