If some distros chose not to follow devices.txt that is their problem.

devices.txt is the specification, and its ABI.

It is fixed and the kernel behaviour is to follow it. Those who didn't
follow it, or who didn't propose a change back when it was specified in
the first place have only themselves to blame.

It isn't changing, and the ISDN code should follow the spec.

How you sort out your userspace is a problem for those who dug holes and
jumped down them.
