Device layer rollup commit. * cdevsw_add() is now required. cdevsw_add() and cdevsw_remove() may specify a mask/match indicating the range of supported minor numbers. Multiple cdevsw_add()'s using the same major number, but distinctly different ranges, may be issued. All devices that failed to call cdevsw_add() before now do. * cdevsw_remove() now automatically marks all devices within its supported range as being destroyed. * vnode->v_rdev is no longer resolved when the vnode is created. Instead, only v_udev (a newly added field) is resolved. v_rdev is resolved when the vnode is opened and cleared on the last close. * A great deal of code was making rather dubious assumptions with regards to the validity of devices associated with vnodes, primarily due to the persistence of a device structure due to being indexed by (major, minor) instead of by (cdevsw, major, minor). In particular, if you run a program which connects to a USB device and then you pull the USB device and plug it back in, the vnode subsystem will continue to believe that the device is open when, in fact, it isn't (because it was destroyed and recreated). In particular, note that all the VFS mount procedures now check devices via v_udev instead of v_rdev prior to calling VOP_OPEN(), since v_rdev is NULL prior to the first open. * The disk layer's device interaction has been rewritten. The disk layer (i.e. the slice and disklabel management layer) no longer overloads its data onto the device structure representing the underlying physical disk. Instead, the disk layer uses the new cdevsw_add() functionality to register its own cdevsw using the underlying device's major number, and simply does NOT register the underlying device's cdevsw. No confusion is created because the device hash is now based on (cdevsw,major,minor) rather then (major,minor). NOTE: This also means that underlying raw disk devices may use the entire device minor number instead of having to reserve the bits used by the disk layer, and also means that can we (theoretically) stack a fully disklabel-supported 'disk' on top of any block device. * The new reference counting scheme prevents this by associating a device with a cdevsw and disconnecting the device from its cdevsw when the cdevsw is removed. Additionally, all udev2dev() lookups run through the cdevsw mask/match and only successfully find devices still associated with an active cdevsw. * Major work on MFS: MFS no longer shortcuts vnode and device creation. It now creates a real vnode and a real device and implements real open and close VOPs. Additionally, due to the disk layer changes, MFS is no longer limited to 255 mounts. The new limit is 16 million. Since MFS creates a real device node, mount_mfs will now create a real /dev/mfs<PID> device that can be read from userland (e.g. so you can dump an MFS filesystem). * BUF AND DEVICE STRATEGY changes. The struct buf contains a b_dev field. In order to properly handle stacked devices we now require that the b_dev field be initialized before the device strategy routine is called. This required some additional work in various VFS implementations. To enforce this requirement, biodone() now sets b_dev to NODEV. The new disk layer will adjust b_dev before forwarding a request to the actual physical device. * A bug in the ISO CD boot sequence which resulted in a panic has been fixed. Testing by: lots of people, but David Rhodus found the most aggregious bugs.
