Package: busybox
Version: 1:1.01-4
Severity: minor

in 2.6, the max value for major is 0xfff

so instead of testing minor and major with fixed value (255)
and as there are no variables MAX_NINOR and MAX_MAJOR

the solution used in coreutils/mknod

i_major != (major_t) i_major
i_minor != (minor_t) i_minor
