Why in MAKEDEV the char device has major 90 and in mtdchar.c it has 
redefined from 90 to 91 in one of the first lines of code: 

#define MTD_CHAR_MAJOR 91 

I had to comment this definition in order to recognize /dev/mtd0 in the doc 
millenium ....  this is strange, why this numbers change from place to 

I downloaded lastests release 2 days ago from cvs
