Subject[PATCH 4.14 087/161] rfkill: allocate static minor
Date
From: Marcel Holtmann <marcel@holtmann.org>

[ Upstream commit 8670b2b8b029a6650d133486be9d2ace146fd29a ]

udev has a feature of creating /dev/<node> device-nodes if it finds
a devnode:<node> modalias. This allows for auto-loading of modules that
provide the node. This requires to use a statically allocated minor
number for misc character devices.

However, rfkill uses dynamic minor numbers and prevents auto-loading
of the module. So allocate the next static misc minor number and use
it for rfkill.
