       getdiskbyname() - get disk description by its name

   Obsolescent Interface
       takes  a	 disk name (such as hp7959B) and returns a pointer to a struc‐
       ture that describes its geometry information and the standard disk par‐
       tition  tables.	 All information is obtained from the disktab database
       file (see disktab(4)).

       The contents of the structure include the following members.  Note that
       there  is not necessarily any correlation between the placement in this
       list and the order in the structure.

	      char    *d_name;		  /* drive name */
	      char    *d_type;		  /* drive type */
	      int     d_secsize;	  /* sector size in bytes */
	      int     d_ntracks;	  /* # tracks/cylinder */
	      int     d_nsectors;	  /* # sectors/track */
	      int     d_ncylinders;	  /* # cylinders */
	      int     d_rpm;		  /* revolutions/minute */
	      struct  partition {
		      int     p_size;	  /* #sectors in partition */
		      short   p_bsize;	  /* block size in bytes */
		      short   p_fsize;	  /* frag size in bytes */
	      } d_partitions[NSECTIONS];
