NAME

       edd_id - udev callout to identify BIOS disk drives via EDD

SYNOPSIS

       edd_id [--export] blockdevice

DESCRIPTION

       edd_id  is  normally  called from a udev rule, to provide udev with the
       edd id for a BIOS disk drive. Udev can use this information  to  create
       symlinks  in  /dev/disk/by-id and /dev/disk/by-label to the real device
       node.

USAGE

       edd_id opens the blockdevice node  specified  at  the  commandline  and
       prints the information chosen by the options.

OPTIONS

       The following commandline switches are supported to specify what edd_id
       should print:

       --export
              print all values (instead of only the id)
