SubjectRe: [PATCH] nbd: show nbd client pid in sysfs
Hi!

> This simple patch allows nbd to expose the nbd-client
> daemon's PID in /sys/block/nbd<x>/pid. This is helpful
> for tracking connection status of a device and for
> determining which nbd devices are currently in use.

Should get a line or two in Documentation/ ?
