    SubjectRe: disks stats through /proc
    I had fixed up the scsi/ide/4drive limit a while ago, but it was never
    included. It was around the IO-APIC introduction time (i.e. more
    important things were 'broken') and there were rumblings of a code freeze.


    Each one does the same thing, but does it differently (apply *only* one of
    these, not both). 'array' hold a resizeable array for each device, and
    'direct' creates a large array up-front for performance reasons. I like
    'array' and Mark Lord likes 'direct'. It'll need a little fixing up to
    get it going on 2.1.130, but it shouldn't be a big deal. It's also
    trivial to do this on a partition level - it's just a matter of removing
    the switch() statement which intentionally removes the per-partition parts
    of a device #.
