It could be some driver screwing up with makedev() though one would think we'd
have hit that before now.  It could be something really odd relating to the
size of the kernel.  It could be the maxuers change resulting in kernel memory
being laid out differently. *shrug*  I didn't see anything in that diff that
would have broken this either.  Does it happen w/o devfs?  I'm updating my
alpha to today's current, so perhaps I'll run into this here.
