Well, I investigated doing this at some point, but it seemed quite
impossible at this time.  We'd have to change the device handling, so
that a driver can hand out private devices for an open and not have
just one device per major/minor.
Actually, no. It just should threat minor==0 or whatever special and
replace the in-kernel file with an entry for the first free minor. That
is possible already, through the mechanism for cloning in the tree

could you show me a short snippet how this could be done? i know the driver can find a free vchan, that's no problem, but it also needs to return a different device than the one which was actually opened. this was where i got stuck.
