[PATCH] rework reserved major handling
Several people have reported failures in dynamic major device number handling due to the recent changes in there to avoid handing out the local/experimental majors. Rolf reports that this is due to a gcc-4.1.0 bug. The patch refactors that code a lot in an attempt to provoke the compiler into behaving.
