Subject[PATCH 1/2] block: genhd: add device_add_disk_with_groups
Date
In the NVME subsystem, we're seeing a race condition with udev where
device_add_disk() is called (which triggers an "add" uevent), and a
sysfs attribute group is added to the disk device afterwards.
If udev rules access these attributes before they are created,
udev processing of the device is incomplete, in particular, device
WWIDs may not be determined correctly.

To fix this, this patch introduces a new function
device_add_disk_with_groups(), which takes a list of attribute groups
and adds them to the device before sending out uevents.
