block: allow disk to have extended device number
Now that disk and partition handlings are mostly unified, it's easy to allow disk to have extended device number. This patch makes add_disk() use extended device number if disk->minors is zero. Both sd and ide-disk are updated to use this. * sd_format_disk_name() is implemented which can generically determine the drive name. This removes disk number restriction stemming from limited device names. * If sd index goes over SD_MAX_DISKS (which can be increased now BTW), sd simply doesn't initialize minors letting block layer choose extended device number. * If CONFIG_DEBUG_EXT_DEVT is set, both sd and ide-disk always set minors to 0 and use extended device numbers.
