[PATCH] virtio-blk: emit udev event when device is resized

From: Milos Vyletel
Date: Thu Feb 21 2013 - 14:11:33 EST

When virtio-blk device is resized from host (using block_resize from QEMU) emit
KOBJ_CHANGE uevent to notify guest about such change. This allows user to have
custom udev rules which would take whatever action if such event occurs. As a
proof of concept I've created simple udev rule that automatically resize
filesystem on virtio-blk device.

ACTION=="change", KERNEL=="vd*", \
ENV{RESIZE}=="1", \
ENV{ID_FS_TYPE}=="ext[3-4]", \
RUN+="/sbin/resize2fs /dev/%k"
ACTION=="change", KERNEL=="vd*", \
ENV{RESIZE}=="1", \
ENV{ID_FS_TYPE}=="LVM2_member", \
RUN+="/sbin/pvresize /dev/%k"
