    Full disk naming convention

    807567
      Hi All,

      I am writing a driver which would support EFI and SMI disks.
      Somewhere the doc says that for EFI /dev/dsk/cxtxdx represent the full disk, that means anytime a disk is converted from SMI to EFI format then /dev/dsk/cxtxdx node should be created always. But the trouble is that this entry doesnt get populated always when a disk is moved from SMI to EFI format.
      I have notice one thing that cxtxdx and cxtxdxs7 shares the same minor number, so does that means if could be use to represent the full disk?

      thanks and warm regards,
      ajit
