Is it likely that there are there any systems that don't have those
macros, but which would support character & block devices? Would the
only systems that don't have them be those for whom character &
block devices aren't a relevant concept (e.g. Haiku)? If so, the
warning seems unnecessary.

But in general that sounds like a fine solution to me.
