Subject[PATCH] Ramdisk ioctl bug fix, kernel 2.4.14
The patch below makes the ramdisk return the actual size that is currently 
allocated instead of returning the max size we can possibly allocate. Affects
system calls ioctl(filedes, BLKGETSIZE) and ioctl(filedes, BLKGETSIZE64) for
ramdisk devices.
