I'm going for a semi-radical change when we do this:

Can we change bdevsw/cdevsw to be struct Xdevsw *Xdevsw[]; (ie. indirect)
and let drivers register (ie. Xdevsw[PTY_MAJOR] = &pty_bdevsw;).  (or, even
better, have cdevsw_add or bdevsw_add to do the dirty work).

This would doing LKM's and reduce or eliminate the need for conf.c.
