int misc_register (struct miscdevice * misc);
misc device structure
Register a miscellaneous device with the kernel. If the minor number is
set to MISC_DYNAMIC_MINOR a minor number is assigned and placed in the
minor field of the structure. For other cases the minor number
requested is used.
The structure passed is linked into the kernel and may not be destroyed
until it has been unregistered.
A zero is returned on success and a negative errno code for failure.
