I don't know what you want this for, but Haiku does not use the major/
minor values at all, and devfs publishes them as 0,0 for all devices 

The dev_t is used for block devices (which are actually char devices 
currently as in BeOS because the drivers do not differentiate) which 
are mounted, but they are just an internal incremented ID.

It does not. So if you don't need makedev for anything else just drop

You'll want to check get_next_image_info() from <OS.h>.
Set a cookie to 0, and iterate over it.
