Unfortunately, this code is going to break with either patch!  It
includes neither sys/types.h nor sys/sysmacros.h and it expects the
sys/sysmacros.h definition of 'major' and 'minor'.

(Neither of these programs appears to have been written with C library
portability in mind, which is understandable considering they're both
quite Linux-specific in other ways.)
