* Register a tape device and return a pointer to the tape class device
* created by the call.
* device
* The pointer to the struct device of the physical (base) device.
* dev
* The intended major/minor number. The major number may be 0 to
* get a dynamic major number.
* fops
* The pointer to the drivers file operations for the tape device.
* device_name
* Pointer to the logical device name (will also be used as kobject name
* of the cdev). This can also be called the name of the tape class
* device.
* mode_name
* Points to the name of the tape mode. This creates a link with that
* name from the physical device to the logical device (class).
