It's correct for the character device, because that's what I inherited from
the original allocation in devices.txt. Not for the block devices. See
util/MAKEDEV in my CVS tree. That tends to agree with the code, regardless
of the state of the documentation - unless some helpful person has 'fixed'
it to match the docs :)
