Subject: [PATCH] [UML] fix mknod
Date: Mon, 22 Jan 2007 21:13:17 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070122201317.GA8594@linuxtv.org> (raw)

Hi,

I was playing with user-mode Linux and found that mknod creates
devices node in hostfs with wrong major/minor numbers.
The patch below fixes it for me.

Johannes

mknod() is broken on UML because userspace has differernt
dev_t size and encoding than kernel.
