I just noticed in initramfs that i can't rmmod xen-blkfront and modprobe it again : it will says something like the device major allready exists and indeed the line about xvd stays in /proc/devices With the dm_mod ,for example, the line disappear from /proc/modules with rmmod

maybe somthing like :
    unregister_blkdev(XENVBD_MAJOR, DEV_NAME);
should be added to the xlblk_exit function ?

( Allthought i 'm not sure it will make any problem except for me :)
