[Xen-devel] Re: Help please: bug#625 SCSI disk conflicts with blkfront---best approach for fix?

The best fix is to stop hijacking major numbers that we don't own.

This has been discussed on LKML and we've been told not to do this.  The
longer we allow this the harder it will be for users when they eventually
have to switch over to xdX.
