Subject[PATCH 5.8 048/177] block: restore a specific error code in bdev_del_partition
Date
From: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>

[ Upstream commit 88ce2a530cc9865a894454b2e40eba5957a60e1a ]

mdadm relies on the fact that deleting an invalid partition returns
-ENXIO or -ENOTTY to detect if a block device is a partition or a
whole device.

Fixes: 08fc1ab6d748 ("block: fix locking in bdev_del_partition")
