implement in-kernel gendisk events handling
Currently, media presence polling for removeable block devices is done from userland. There are several issues with this. * Polling is done by periodically opening the device. For SCSI devices, the command sequence generated by such action involves a few different commands including TEST_UNIT_READY. This behavior, while perfectly legal, is different from Windows which only issues single command, GET_EVENT_STATUS_NOTIFICATION. Unfortunately, some ATAPI devices lock up after being periodically queried such command sequences. * There is no reliable and unintrusive way for a userland program to tell whether the target device is safe for media presence polling. For example, polling for media presence during an on-going burning session can make it fail. The polling program can avoid this by opening the device with O_EXCL but then it risks making a valid exclusive user of the device fail w/ -EBUSY. * Userland polling is unnecessarily heavy and in-kernel implementation is lighter and better coordinated (workqueue, timer slack). This patch implements framework for in-kernel disk event handling, which includes media presence polling. * bdops->check_events() is added, which supercedes ->media_changed(). It should check whether there's any pending event and return if so. Currently, two events are defined - DISK_EVENT_MEDIA_CHANGE and DISK_EVENT_EJECT_REQUEST. ->check_events() is guaranteed not to be called parallelly. * gendisk->events and ->async_events are added. These should be initialized by block driver before passing the device to add_disk(). The former contains the mask of all supported events and the latter the mask of all events which the device can report without polling. /sys/block/*/events[_async] export these to userland. * Kernel parameter block.events_dfl_poll_msecs controls the system polling interval (default is 0 which means disable) and /sys/block/*/events_poll_msecs control polling intervals for individual devices (default is -1 meaning use system setting). Note that if a device can report all supported events asynchronously and its polling interval isn't explicitly set, the device won't be polled regardless of the system polling interval. * If a device is opened exclusively with write access, event checking is automatically disabled until all write exclusive accesses are released. * There are event 'clearing' events. For example, both of currently defined events are cleared after the device has been successfully opened. This information is passed to ->check_events() callback using @clearing argument as a hint. * Event checking is always performed from system_nrt_wq and timer slack is set to 25% for polling. * Nothing changes for drivers which implement ->media_changed() but not ->check_events(). Going forward, all drivers will be converted to ->check_events() and ->media_change() will be dropped.
