I was thinking to make a more heavy work on the script, that will implies a 
lot of changes in the big switch case structure. The way that I think to 
rewrite it whould make, the script more slow(because of more recursive 
calls), but more easy to maintain, regarding to the 
linux/Documentation/device.txt file. Do you think that I can start to work on 
it, and send patches.

I also thinks, it's a pitty that the kernel doesn't provides any standard tool 
(afaik) to build the devices.
