Subject[136/146] brd: handle on-demand devices correctly
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@gmail.com>

commit af46566885a373b0a526932484cd8fef8de7b598 upstream.

When finding or allocating a ram disk device, brd_probe() did not take
partition numbers into account so that it can result to a different
device. Consider following example (I set CONFIG_BLK_DEV_RAM_COUNT=4
for simplicity) :

$ sudo modprobe brd max_part=15
$ ls -l /dev/ram*
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 1, 0 2011-05-25 15:41 /dev/ram0
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 1, 16 2011-05-25 15:41 /dev/ram1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 1, 32 2011-05-25 15:41 /dev/ram2
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 1, 48 2011-05-25 15:41 /dev/ram3
$ sudo mknod /dev/ram4 b 1 64
$ sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ram4 bs=4k count=256
256+0 records in
256+0 records out
1048576 bytes (1.0 MB) copied, 0.00215578 s, 486 MB/s
namhyung@leonhard:linux$ ls -l /dev/ram*
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 1, 0 2011-05-25 15:41 /dev/ram0
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 1, 16 2011-05-25 15:41 /dev/ram1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 1, 32 2011-05-25 15:41 /dev/ram2
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 1, 48 2011-05-25 15:41 /dev/ram3
brw-r--r-- 1 root root 1, 64 2011-05-25 15:45 /dev/ram4
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 1, 1024 2011-05-25 15:44 /dev/ram64
After this patch, /dev/ram4 - instead of /dev/ram64 - was
accessed correctly.

In addition, 'range' passed to blk_register_region() should
include all range of dev_t that RAMDISK_MAJOR can address.
It does not need to be limited by partition numbers unless
'rd_nr' param was specified.
