ata_id - udev callout to read product/serial number from ATA drives
ata_id [--export] blockdevice
ata_id is normally called from a udev rule, to provide udev with a
unique string and additional information (uuid, label) for an ATA
drive. Udev can use this information to create symlinks in
/dev/disk/by-id and /dev/disk/by-label to the real device node.
ata_id opens the blockdevice node specified at the commandline and
prints the information chosen by the options.
The following commandline switches are supported to specify what ata_id
print all values (instead of only the id)
