Subject[PATCH 1/6] Wrapper for lower-level revalidate_disk routines.
Date
Wrapper for lower-level revalidate_disk routines.

This is a wrapper for the lower-level revalidate_disk call-backs such
as sd_revalidate_disk(). It allows us to perform pre and post
operations when calling them.

We will use this wrapper in a later patch to adjust block device sizes
after an online resize (a _post_ operation).
