Online version of that (hardblocks.h include file) is here.

I'm not sure exactly which device drivers (scsi.device etc.) support bad block lists. I know at least one does because I remember looking at its code. The driver has to handle remapping accesses to blocks which are marked as bad. Many/most probably don't because it would significantly complicate the code, and most(?) SCSI drives can be told to remap bad sectors so from then on access is transparent to the host computer.
