Subject: [PATCH 1/2] memstick: don't allocate unused major for ms_block
Date: Thu, 02 Jun 2016 16:43:18 +1000
Message-ID: <20160602064318.4403.49955.stgit@noble> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20160602064306.4403.72816.stgit@noble>

When alloc_disk(0) is used the ->major number is completely ignored.
All devices are allocated with a major of BLOCK_EXT_MAJOR.

So remove registration and deregistration of 'major'.
