Subject[PATCH 0/5] brd: partition handling fixes

This is a patch set for fixing bugs on partition handling code which
was found when I read loop block device code as well as some cleanups.

The patch 2/5 and 3/5 are real fixes and should go to the stable tree
as Jens suggested on loop patches. Since partition managing code was
introduced by commit d7853d1f8932 ("brd: modify ramdisk device to be
able to manage partitions") all stable releases would need these fixes.

$ git name-rev --tags d7853d1f8932
d7853d1f8932 tags/v2.6.26-rc1~122

As always, any comments are welcomed.

Namhyung Kim (5):
brd: get rid of unused members from struct brd_device
brd: limit 'max_part' module param to DISK_MAX_PARTS
brd: handle on-demand devices correctly
brd: fix comment on initial device creation
brd: export module parameters
