Ahmm.. apparently not in the rbd related threads. So moving things
around and having rbd under /sys/bus we'll have the following:

/sys/bus/rbd/drivers/rbd/..
    add - add a device
    remove - remove a device

/sys/bus/rbd/devices/<id>
   name
   pool
   ...

/sys/bus/rbd/devices/<id>/snaps/<name>
    id
    size
    ...


Would this work?

Thanks,
Yehuda
