Subject: [PATCH 2/2] NVMe: don't allocate unused nvme_major
Date: Thu, 02 Jun 2016 16:43:18 +1000
Message-ID: <20160602064318.4403.93301.stgit@noble> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20160602064306.4403.72816.stgit@noble>

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

So remove all references to nvme_major.
