I don't understand why you're doing this. The solution is for the
console driver to use a new major number.

Just covering all the bases.
The goal is to have an intermediary patch the Xen will accpet until they willing to move to a new TTY, they have been awfully quite about this.

Ultimately, we'll have a patch that will do the new major number but allow this "bug compatible" to exist as a CONFIG.
