Default ioctl HDIO_GETGEO to device mapper devpath

Hi,I have a linux *mapper device on the host, I would like to get the start offset.I get this by the following ioctl . Although the call succeeds but it sets the hd_geometry_rec to "0"

I checked through gdb , the ioctl call suceeds ,but sets all the field of hd_geometry to "0"
(gdb) p hd_geometry_rec$2 = {heads = 0 '', sectors = 0 '', cylinders = 0, start = 0}

The device configuration===================[root@localh trunk]# uname -aLinux localh 2.6.18-164.el5 #1 SMP Tue Aug 18 15:51:48 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

[root@localh trunk]# fdisk -l /dev/mapper/mpath4
Disk /dev/mapper/mpath4: 523 MB, 523960320 bytes255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 63 cylindersUnits = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Yep. Device-mapper device are able to report the geometry, but you
have to set it first :-)

The attached patch should fix this.

Cheers,
