Subject[PATCH 5/5] brd: export module parameters
Date
Export 'rd_nr', 'rd_size' and 'max_part' parameters to sysfs so user can
know that how many devices are allowed, how big each device is and how
many partitions are supported. If 'max_part' is 0, it means simply the
device doesn't support partitioning.

Also note that 'max_part' can be adjusted to power of 2 minus 1 form if
needed. User should check this value after the module loading if he/she
want to use that number correctly (i.e. fdisk, mknod, etc.).
