Subject: hdparm-8.7 is released

Version 8.7 of hdparm is now available from Sourceforge.net.

This version includes a number of small fixes and the like,
plus these new features:

-- Uses sysfs to get device offset / size values,
   so it will continue to work with 2TB (and larger) drives.
   It falls back to the ioctl() interfaces when sysfs is unavailable.

-- The -Q (queue_depth) flag now works with sysfs.
   This can be useful for easy tuning of SATA NCQ queue_depths, among others.

-- New --fibmap flag, to dump out the extent list for a specified file.
   New --fibmap-sector flag, to dump out the absolute LBA of a specific sector of a file.
   These can be quite useful for determining suitable LBA values for fault-injection.
