[63/68] md: correctly handle probe of an mdp device.

2.6.32-longterm review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: NeilBrown <neilb@xxxxxxx>

commit 8f5f02c460b7ca74ce55ce126ce0c1e58a3f923d upstream.

'mdp' devices are md devices with preallocated device numbers
for partitions. As such it is possible to mknod and open a partition
before opening the whole device.

this causes md_probe() to be called with a device number of a
partition, which in-turn calls mddev_find with such a number.

However mddev_find expects the number of a 'whole device' and
does the wrong thing with partition numbers.

So add code to mddev_find to remove the 'partition' part of
a device number and just work with the 'whole device'.
