Subject: [PATCH -next 0/5] block: add a sequence number to disks
Date: Mon, 15 Mar 2021 21:02:37 +0100
Message-ID: <20210315200242.67355-1-mcroce@linux.microsoft.com> (raw)

From: Matteo Croce <mcroce@microsoft.com>

With this series a monotonically increasing number is added to disks,
precisely in the genhd struct, and it's exported in sysfs and uevent.

This helps the userspace correlate events for devices that reuse the
same device, like loop.

The first patch is the core one, the 2..4 expose the information in
different ways, while the last one increase the sequence number for
loop devices at every attach.

If merged, this feature will immediately used by the userspace:
https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/17469#issuecomment-762919781

This is just a resend after the merge window and rebased on linux-block.
Also, added more people in CC from the get_maintainer.pl output
as well as -next in the subject.

Matteo Croce (5):
  block: add disk sequence number
  block: add ioctl to read the disk sequence number
  block: refactor sysfs code
  block: export diskseq in sysfs
  loop: increment sequence number
