[linux-lvm] Removing direct access to gendisk_head



Hi!

I'm currently looking over kernel code (for cleaning-up purposes)
and removed EXPORT_SYMBOL(gendisk_head) which was a no-no for
current LVM kernel code. Please think about picking up this patch

	- Named struct initializers
	- Removing direct use of gendisk_head

There's an open Q: Do we need to nullify ->real_devices and ->next?
I don't think so (but I am unsure) so please remove these two lines
upon your oppinion:-)

MfG, JBG
