That sounds like a good plan. But you can't guarantee the order that ports
will get unregistered in (they might belong to different drivers). I think
you need to keep track of the number of the highest port independently of
Incidentally, if there's anywhere else that this sort of gruesome thing happens:
sprintf (lastname, "parport%d", portcount - 1);
if (!strcmp (port->name, lastname)) portcount--;
then we ought to keep the port number as an integer in struct parport as well
as (or even instead of) the string version.
