>From /usr/src/linux/Documentation/devices.txt:

100 char        POTS (analogue telephone) A/B port {2.6}
                  0 = /dev/phone0       First telephone port
                  1 = /dev/phone1       Second telephone port

                The names have been reallocated to Telephony For
                Linux, major 159.  All use of major 100 should be
                considered legacy and deprecated.

This might be a hint in which direction the answer has to be found, but I
don't know more about it.
