This hint needs much additional work. It is 100% true for 2.4.x kernels, 
but not 2.6.x (that's why we need the BuildingKernel page in wiki - the 
existing 2.4 documentation and experience does not apply anymore). Bugs:

1) alias char-major does not work with udev
2) there is nothing said about aliases built into modules and available 
in /lib/modules/2.6.6/modules.alias. Most of the example alias lines are 
already there and therefore not needed.
