Re: How to get device name with device id?



ashish mahamuni,

I guess maybe the following function does what you want.
But it is a kernel function, sorry :(

int __file_to_disk (char * file_name,  char *disk_name) {
        int err = 0;
        struct nameidata        nd;
        struct super_block      * sb;
        struct vfsmount *mnt;
        err = path_lookup(file_name, LOOKUP_FOLLOW, &nd);
        if(err){
                DCFS3_ERROR("error to parse the file name, %s\n", file_name);
                goto exit;
        }
        mnt = nd.mnt;
        sb = mnt->mnt_sb;
        strcpy (disk_name, sb->s_bdev->bd_disk->disk_name);
        path_release(&nd);
exit:
        return err;
}
