    10, 233 is allocated officially to /dev/kmview which is shipping in
    Ubuntu and Debian distributions.  vhost_net seem to have borrowed it
    without making a proper request and this causes regressions in the other
    distributions.
    
    vhost_net can use a dynamic minor so use that instead.  Also update the
    file with a comment to try and avoid future misunderstandings.
