I'd like to see such patches ...
AND: don't forget to set minor_count to some more sensible value,
or make it a kernel boot parameter, or you'll end up with only two
minors. Which may or may not be sufficient for your needs...

And of course, you probably  should comment out the module
specific parts in the scripts.
