[PATCH] blkprase: binary dump capability + notify added
Here is a proposed patch which would allow blkparse to dump its output to a binary file (in addition to the ascii output). It adds a new '-d <file>' parameter. The purpose of this would be to allow for the easier handling of the collected data by analysis tools. [Rather than having to parse the textual output from blkparse, or duplicate the collation efforts of blkparse itself.]
