Hi Jens, please pull from:

git:// for-4.8/block receive:

The removal of ->driverfs_dev in favor of just passing the parent
device in as a parameter to add_disk(). See below, it has received a
"Reviewed-by" from Christoph, Bart, and Johannes.

It is also a pre-requisite for Fam Zheng's work to cleanup gendisk
uevents vs attribute visibility [1]. We would extend device_add_disk()
to take an attribute_group list.

This is based off a branch of block.git/for-4.8/drivers and has
received a positive build success notification from the kbuild robot
across several configs.

[1]: "gendisk: Generate uevent after attribute available"

Pulled, thanks Dan.
