I had a short question about the limitation of max. 8
partitions in the MMC stack. Before the kernel was
limited to 256 minor numbers, but I believe this is no
longer the case (65536 if I recall correctly). Is
there a way around this 8 partition limitation?
I understand that simply renumbering all minor numbers
is not really a preferred situation as it would
require everyone to recreate their device nodes.

Indeed. And some embedded systems might not be able to use 32-bit
device nodes. Russell, do you have any insight to share?
