5	Description:
6	
7	Being used for adding and removing rbd block devices.
8	
9	Usage: <mon ip addr> <options> <pool name> <rbd image name> [snap name]
10	
11	 $ echo "192.168.0.1 name=admin rbd foo" > /sys/bus/rbd/add
12	
13	The snapshot name can be "-" or omitted to map the image read/write. A <dev-id>
14	will be assigned for any registered block device. If snapshot is used, it will
15	be mapped read-only.
16	
17	Removal of a device:
18	
19	  $ echo <dev-id> > /sys/bus/rbd/remove
20	
21	Entries under /sys/bus/rbd/devices/<dev-id>/
