[dm-devel] [RESEND][PATCH] Send uevents for disk write_protect changes


This patch is needed for the dm-multipath, so that the daemon can capture the 
event and reload the dm table when the read-only setting of the disk changes. 
Can this be merged?


From: Hannes Reinecke <hare suse de>
Subject: Send uevents for write_protect changes

Whenever a block device changes it's read-only attribute
notify the userspace about it.
