Hi, I was wondering if anybody was using a UMEM <>
NVRAM card [the MM5415 family] as an external journal for ext3.
According to the help text in 2.6.7 config, it doesn't have a major
number assigned so it chooses one dynamically. It suggests to use
'devfs' (which I thought was deprecated in 2.6.x) or look in

I was wondering if anybody was using this card and what they were doing to get
round the major number moratorium

Regards, Yusuf
