Subject[026/146] block: dont block events on excl write for non-optical
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
devices

From: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>

commit d4dc210f69bcb0b4bef5a83b1c323817be89bad1 upstream.

Disk event code automatically blocks events on excl write. This is
primarily to avoid issuing polling commands while burning is in
progress. This behavior doesn't fit other types of devices with
removeable media where polling commands don't have adverse side
effects and door locking usually doesn't exist.

This patch introduces new genhd flag which controls the auto-blocking
behavior and uses it to enable auto-blocking only on optical devices.

Note for stable: 2.6.38 and later only
