Add a new sysfs handle to export the new diskseq value.
Place it in <sysfs>/block/<disk>/diskseq and document it.

+Description:
+		The /sys/block/<disk>/diskseq files reports the disk
+		sequence number, which is a monotonically increasing
+		number assigned to every drive.
+		Some devices, like the loop device, refresh such number
+		every time the backing file is changed.
+		The value type is 64 bit unsigned.
