No problem, and I was curious as to why 2s, and the fact that is it used
in udev for events_dfl_poll_msecs is a good reason.

The add_disk() call happens immediately before the new
disk_events_set_poll_msecs() call. add_disk() is what eventually creates
the sysfs files and calls your new disk_events_set_poll_msecs(). It
makes more sense to me to have the new call to
disk_events_set_poll_msecs(disk, 2000) before the call to add_disk().
That way add_disk()could override the 2 second default based on user
input. If a distro doesn't support udev setting events_dfl_poll_msecs,
the add_disk() won't ever make a call to disk_events_set_poll_msecs()
and the 2 second default will stand.
