Hey Greg,

Thanks so much for the review.

Ok, that makes sense. I'll do a v3 shortly.

I copied this from drivers/dax/dax.c so when I have a spare moment I'll
submit a patch to remove it from there as well.

Just to make sure I get this right without extra churn: does this look
correct?


        cdev = &stdev->cdev;
        cdev_init(cdev, &switchtec_fops);
        cdev->owner = THIS_MODULE;

        rc = cdev_add(&stdev->cdev, dev->devt, 1);
        if (rc)
                goto err_cdev;

        dev = &stdev->dev;
        dev->devt = MKDEV(MAJOR(switchtec_devt), minor);
        dev->class = switchtec_class;
        dev->parent = &pdev->dev;
        dev->groups = switchtec_device_groups;
        dev->release = stdev_release;
        dev_set_name(dev, "switchtec%d", minor);

        rc = device_register(dev);
        if (rc) {
                cdev_del(&stdev->cdev);
                put_device(dev);
                return ERR_PTR(rc);
        }


Thanks,

Logan
