Add a block layer notification mechanism whereby notifications about
block-layer events such as I/O errors, can be reported to a monitoring
process asynchronously.

Firstly, an event queue needs to be created:

	fd = open("/dev/event_queue", O_RDWR);
	ioctl(fd, IOC_WATCH_QUEUE_SET_SIZE, page_size << n);

then a notification can be set up to report block notifications via that
queue:

	struct watch_notification_filter filter = {
		.nr_filters = 1,
		.filters = {
			[0] = {
				.type = WATCH_TYPE_BLOCK_NOTIFY,
				.subtype_filter[0] = UINT_MAX;
			},
		},
	};
	ioctl(fd, IOC_WATCH_QUEUE_SET_FILTER, &filter);
	watch_devices(fd, 12);

After that, records will be placed into the queue when, for example, errors
occur on a block device.  Records are of the following format:

	struct block_notification {
		struct watch_notification watch;
		__u64	dev;
		__u64	sector;
	} *n;

Where:

	n->watch.type will be WATCH_TYPE_BLOCK_NOTIFY

	n->watch.subtype will be the type of notification, such as
	NOTIFY_BLOCK_ERROR_CRITICAL_MEDIUM.

	n->watch.info & WATCH_INFO_LENGTH will indicate the length of the
	record.

	n->watch.info & WATCH_INFO_ID will be the second argument to
	watch_devices(), shifted.

	n->dev will be the device numbers munged together.

	n->sector will indicate the affected sector (if appropriate for the
	event).

Note that it is permissible for event records to be of variable length -
or, at least, the length may be dependent on the subtype.
