Subjectlseek("/dev/hda1", 0, SEEK_END) returns 0
Hi all

I would like to ask you if the lseek with SEEK_END and offset of 0
should return 0
when used on raw devices like hard disk or cdrom.
By example Solaris 2.5 returns the correct length of partiton but Linux
2.0 returns 0.
What is the right behaviour?

with regards
