Set the ODD's in kernel poll interval to 2s for the user in case the
user is using an old distro on which udev will not set the system wide
block parameter events_dfl_poll_msecs.

Why did you pick 2 seconds?

Could you check that disk event's poll_msecs is the default (-1) before
setting it to 2s? I am thinking of a case when the probe happens after
the call to disk_events_poll_msecs_store() and this code would overwrite
the user specified value.

Just a random pick, no special meaning here.
On newer distros, udev will also pick 2s for the events_dfl_poll_msecs
parameter, so I just followed that :-)
Do you see any problem with this setting?

The block device sr0 is created by this driver in this probe function,
so the user should not be able to set the poll interval before probe,
right?

Thanks,

No problem, and I was curious as to why 2s, and the fact that is it used
in udev for events_dfl_poll_msecs is a good reason.

The add_disk() call happens immediately before the new
disk_events_set_poll_msecs() call. add_disk() is what eventually creates
the sysfs files and calls your new disk_events_set_poll_msecs(). It
makes more sense to me to have the new call to
disk_events_set_poll_msecs(disk, 2000) before the call to add_disk().
That way add_disk()could override the 2 second default based on user
input. If a distro doesn't support udev setting events_dfl_poll_msecs,
the add_disk() won't ever make a call to disk_events_set_poll_msecs()
and the 2 second default will stand.

Right, and it's disk_add_events in add_disk that adds these sysfs files.

> and calls your new disk_events_set_poll_msecs().

No... there is no call to disk_events_set_poll_msecs in add_disk, when
the events for the disk is created by disk_alloc_events, the poll_msecs
of the event is initialized to the default value -1. And then
disk_add_events will create the sysfs files and add_disk will return,
and I'll change the default value of -1 to 2000 with the new function
I've made.

This is too early, since the events of the disk is not allocated yet.

I hope I've explained this clearly, if you see a problem, please let me
know, thanks.
