block: add partition resize function to blkpg ioctl
Add a new operation code (BLKPG_RESIZE_PARTITION) to the BLKPG ioctl that allows altering the size of an existing partition, even if it is currently in use. This patch converts hd_struct->nr_sects into sequence counter because One might extend a partition while IO is happening to it and update of nr_sects can be non-atomic on 32bit machines with 64bit sector_t. This can lead to issues like reading inconsistent size of a partition. Sequence counter have been used so that readers don't have to take bdev mutex lock as we call sector_in_part() very frequently. Now all the access to hd_struct->nr_sects should happen using sequence counter read/update helper functions part_nr_sects_read/part_nr_sects_write. There is one exception though, set_capacity()/get_capacity(). I think theoritically race should exist there too but this patch does not modify set_capacity()/get_capacity() due to sheer number of call sites and I am afraid that change might break something. I have left that as a TODO item. We can handle it later if need be. This patch does not introduce any new races as such w.r.t set_capacity()/get_capacity(). v2: Add CONFIG_LBDAF test to UP preempt case as suggested by Phillip.
