      [PATCH] Add block_device_operations.getgeo block device method · a885c8c4
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      
      
      HDIO_GETGEO is implemented in most block drivers, and all of them have to
      duplicate the code to copy the structure to userspace, as well as getting
      the start sector.  This patch moves that to common code [1] and adds a
      ->getgeo method to fill out the raw kernel hd_geometry structure.  For many
      drivers this means ->ioctl can go away now.
      
      [1] the s390 block drivers are odd in this respect.  xpram sets ->start
          to 4 always which seems more than odd, and the dasd driver shifts
          the start offset around, probably because of it's non-standard
          sector size.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
