    Your last line is wrong

    The Linux Kernel fols unfortunately artificially hides information for the
    /dev/hd* interface making exactly this compatibility impossible.

    If you are against personal attacks, why didn't you intercede for the
    postings from Jens Axboe and Albert Cahalan?

    I am against personal attacks and this is the first time where it tooks
    more than a day before LKML people started with personal attacks against me.
    So in principle this is some sort of progress compared to former times.
    If you like to continue this discussion, I would like you to stay reasonable
    and help to keep the discussion stay based on technical based arguments.
