SubjectRe: [stable] [patch 21/50] brd: dont show ramdisks in /proc/partitions

We have one /proc/partitions parser that got broken (never saw details
on how). I don't care for this change either (esp. since nbd is still
left out...it's inconsistent).

This is now the upstream behaviour (obvious since it's a -stable
candidate), and the change was introduced in 2.6.25...I'd actually prefer
to drop this patch, but there's no good reason to deviate if upstream
keeps this one. I can defer while upstream gets revisited, can you
revisit this upstream?

thanks,
-chris
