Hi Mike,

These two modules use makedev/major/minor but don't have explicit
checks for the functions.  Use the existing autoconf macro which
will probe some headers for use and set up some defines.

Does this change fix a compilation problem? You did not say so.

Context in http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnulib/2016-03/msg00025.html
glibc-2.23 and musl now need this change it seems.

I suggested a makedev gnulib module in the thread above
as it's not just the headers that are varying,
as also some systems use mkdev() and some makedev().

The patch should be fine to apply though and fixes an immediate issue.
