- 2.5.67 sysfs

- 2.5.67 sysfs

Post by Krishnakumar. » Thu, 17 Apr 2003 14:20:20



Hi,

This patch will make the size entry in the sysfs
of the ramdisk as writable.
Using this we can modify the size of the ramdisk
at run time.

Usage: echo "4000" > /sys/block/ram0/size
will change the size of the ramdisk 0.
Similarly for all the ramdisks.

It would discard all the writes to size
if the major number is different from that of
ramdisk. So all other size present in
other block devices remain safe.

Regards and Thanks
KK

PS: The following patch was generated by using
diff -urN and modifies two files - genhd.c and rd.c
