Doing a global replace of "MINOR(" with "minor(" in all
.c files in linux/drivers/sound allows all of the sound drivers
to compile (at least as modules on x86). This reflect the
changes in kdev_t introduced in linux-2.5.2-pre6. You can do this
by applying the following patch *or* by the following shell command
(which is how I did it in the first place):
for file in $(find linux/drivers/sound -name '*.c' | xargs egrep -l 'MINOR\(' ) ; do
ed $file << DONE ; done
One note about this: this resulted in some drivers that
made the following rather obscure looking declarations:
int minor = minor(dev);
Apparently, the variable being declared is not in the scope
of its initialization value. So, the code works, but it's not as
clear as could be. I could rename the effected variables if need
be, although I that is something that individual device driver
maintainers could deal with at "leisure" just as well.
I have not tested these changes. I only know that they
make the sound drivers compile.
