Subjecti2o_block struct gendisk misinitialization (2.4.3)
Hi

i2o_block is not properly initializing its gendisk structure
(i2o_gendisk) and someone forgot to link it to the gendisk linked list,
causing i2o hard drives and partitions not to show in /proc/partitions
(debian installer relies on this to find fdisk'able drives).

I attached a simple patch to fix it.
