Attached is a patch to diskdevs.c that is required if the major device 
number used for the disk drive is greater than 32.  The function 
create_disk_entry will reallocate memory to change the size of the 
disk_device_table, but the "disktab" pointer is not updated to point to 
the newly reallocated memory.

I have not received any information that Bugzilla is operational, so I 
opted to submit the patch this way.

I ran into this when dynamically registering an SD card device, and the 
major number returned was 0x24.

After the patch was applied, the SD card was successfully registered and
