    Subject[PATCH] Use hex numbers in fs/block_dev.c
    We're using hex numbers to identify devices in most places. We should use
    them in filesystem messages, errors etc. too, this would be much more
    consistent and avoids things like this where two different naming styles
    for the same error are used:

    end_request: [...] dev 16:45 (hdd), sector 9175248
    EXT3-fs error (device ide1(22,69)): [...] inode=575269, block=1146906

    With this patch the second message would look like this:

    EXT3-fs error (device ide1(16:45)): [...] inode=575269, block=1146906

    This code is used in some drivers outside fs/ too, but there only in *print*
    or DEBUG's.
