Subject[RFC PATCH 1/5] block/genhd: Notify udev about capacity change
Date
Allow block/genhd to notify user space (via udev) about disk size changes
using a new helper disk_set_capacity(), which is a wrapper on top
of set_capacity(). disk_set_capacity() will only notify via udev if
the current capacity or the target capacity is not zero.

Background:

As a part of a patch to allow sending the RESIZE event on disk capacity
change, Christoph (hch@lst.de) requested that the patch be made generic
and the hacks for virtio block and xen block devices be removed and
merged via a generic helper.

Testing:
1. I did some basic testing with an NVME device, by resizing it in
the backend and ensured that udevd received the event.
