      Bugs
      - Use %u in dprintf() when reporting number of reads and writes (the
        corresponding variable is an unsigned int).
      - Fix example in README where the parameter "-a" was written as "-n".

      Features
      - The parameter "-a" now also supports symlinks for disk names. Thus, disks
        can be specified using something like /dev/disk/by-uuid/... Use "-d" to
        verify that the resulting disk name is what you want.
      
        Please note that disk names are resolved to device nodes at startup. Also,
        since many entries in /dev/disk/by-xxx are actually partitions, partition
        numbers are automatically removed from the resulting device node.
      
      Bugs
      - Not really a bug, but the disk name comparison used strstr which is a bit
        useless because only disks starting with "sd" and a single letter after
        that are currently considered. Replaced the comparison with strcmp()

      - New parameter "-a" to allow selecting idle timeouts for individual disks;
        compatibility to previous releases is maintained by having an implicit
        default which matches all SCSI disks
      
      Bugs
      - Changed comparison operator for idle periods from '>' to '>=' to prevent
        adding one polling interval to idle time
      - Changed sleep time before calling sync after updating the log file to 1s
        (from 3s) to accumulate fewer dirty blocks before synching. It's still
        a compromize but the log file is for debugging purposes, anyway. A test
        with fsync() was unsuccessful because the next bdflush-initiated sync
        still caused spin-ups.
