Seems like that's where it belongs.

The reason why it is in /sys/block is because it is apparently a "subsystem",
and using decl_subsys - drivers/block/genhd.c

I'm not convinced ... If you look at how /sys is organized, it really
doesn't make any sense ... block devives are really devices of "class
block", wether we have a block "subsystem" in there is irrelevant imho.

Sorry to be unclear: I was agreeing with you ;)

I was just pointing out that the reason it is currently /sys/block is
that decl_subsys call.
