I believe this would have the effect of confusing your kerneld rather
badly. When the request for block-major-11 comes in, it will load pcd,
but this will set itself up on a different major number, so the request
will not be resolved.

You might even get some sort of infinite loop, but since I don't much about
kerneld, I can't really say.

Don't try this at home, boys and girls.
