This allows specifying a disk sequence number in XenStore.  If it does
not match the disk sequence number of the underlying device, the device
will not be exported and a warning will be logged.  Userspace can use
this to eliminate race conditions due to major/minor number reuse.
Older kernels will ignore this, so it is safe for userspace to set it
unconditionally.

I'm marking this patch as RFC because I have not tested it beyond
compiliation, and because I want to get feedback on the API before I put
more effort into it.
