Well, according to the Linux devices index, major numbers 240-254 are reserved for "LOCAL/EXPERIMENTAL USE"... Strange... What's your distro again? And have you installed some "exotic" software or done some system changes recently?
You can still check in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/devices.txt what sort of device that could be...
