brd: Fix all partitions BUGs
This patch fixes up brd's partitions scheme, now enjoying all worlds. The MAIN fix here is that currently, if one fdisks some partitions, a BAD bug will make all partitions point to the same start-end sector ie: 0 - brd_size And an mkfs of any partition would trash the partition table and the other partition. Another fix is that "mount -U uuid" will not work if show_part was not specified, because of the GENHD_FL_SUPPRESS_PARTITION_INFO flag. We now always load without it and remove the show_part parameter. [We remove Dmitry's new module-param part_show it is now always show] So NOW the logic goes like this: * max_part - Just says how many minors to reserve between ramX devices. In any way, there can be as many partition as requested. If minors between devices ends, then dynamic 259-major ids will be allocated on the fly. The default is now max_part=1, which means all partitions devt(s) will be from the dynamic (259) major-range. (If persistent partition minors is needed use max_part=X) For example with /dev/sdX max_part is hard coded 16. * Creation of new devices on the fly still/always work: mknod /path/devnod b 1 X fdisk -l /path/devnod Will create a new device if [X / max_part] was not already created before. (Just as before) partitions on the dynamically created device will work as well Same logic applies with minors as with the pre-created ones. TODO: dynamic grow of device size. So each device can have it's own size.
