This looks good to me, I've applied it, but I also want to extend the
ndctl unit tests to cover this mechanism.
Right. For the time being, would you mind to use the attached test
program for your sanity tests? It simply monitors sysfs notifications
and prints badblocks info... Sorry for inconvenience.
Since I am not familiar with the ndctl unit tests and I am traveling for
the rest of the month, I may have to look into it after I am back.
