Subject: [PATCH 31/31] CAPI: Officially claim char major 191

I found no trace of this mysterious "pcl181" device, neither in-tree nor
out there in the wild. At the same time, the in-tree CAPI middleware is
using major 191 for many years now and obviously without any conflict.
Let's officially claim this major number.
