It is just because disk->first_minor is >= 0x100000, then same dev_t
can be allocated in blk_alloc_devt().

MKDEV(disk->major, disk->first_minor + part->partno)

But block layer does support extended dynamic devt allocation, and brd
sets flag of GENHD_FL_EXT_DEVT too.

So I think the correct fix is to fallback to extended dynamic allocation
when running out of consecutive minor space.

How about the following approach?

And of course, ext devt allocation may fail too, but that is another
generic un-solved issue: error handling isn't done for adding disk.
