That's like driving round the wrong block - backwards...

There's no need to know which particular major(dev) is mfi,
what is needed is to know whether the dev you have is the one
that gets to mfi, which is going at the problem the other way

With suitable error checking added, just use

        cdevsw_lookup(dev)->d_ioctl == mfiioctl

(or whatever its ioctl function is named).
