block, char_dev: Use correct format specifier for unsigned ints
register_blkdev() and __register_chrdev_region() treat the major number as an unsigned int. So print it the same way to avoid absurd error statements such as: "... major requested (-1) is greater than the maximum (511) ..." (and also fix off-by-one bugs in the error prints). While at it, also update the comment describing register_blkdev(). Signed-off-by: Srivatsa S.
