seeprom(4) - MI or MD major?
Several models of Sun have parts with AT24C64 eeproms which are connected to
an I2C bus. I'd like to make these attach. For example, on a Sun Blade 2000,
I can have:
seeprom0 at iic0 addr 0x50: nvram
seeprom1 at iic0 addr 0xd0: dimm-fru
seeprom9 at iic1 addr 0x50: cpu-fru
and I can retrieve, for example, the Sun part numbers from these devices.
The seeprom manual page states:
A device major number is not assigned.
so I'd like to assign a major number to seeprom. However, it seems that
seeprom has been unused since NetBSD 2.0, so I don't know if it's worth
adding an MI major (e.g. 206). Therefore, I was planning to add a sparc64
MD major. Does this seem reasonable?
