Same issue with sound devices as well, but I've managed to solve it by
implementing own clone manager which require tiny hook into open() and
close() along with garbage collector and ability to handle various
abusive behaviour (while : ; ls /dev/xxx ; done, etc). See
sys/dev/sound/clone.* . It should be generic enough.
