Subject: [PATCH v7 1/4] block: Add alternative_gpt_sector() operation
Date: Fri, 20 Aug 2021 03:45:33 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210820004536.15791-2-digetx@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210820004536.15791-1-digetx@gmail.com>

Add alternative_gpt_sector() block device operation which specifies
alternative location of a GPT entry. This allows us to support Android
devices that have GPT entry at a non-standard location and can't be
repartitioned easily.
