That one got sent straight to Enrique.

Yes, the bulk of the attached patch is what I have previously sent you, so I
think we're up to date there, the libfdisk segfault arises IIRC when
installing to an NFS root file system when you have partitioned hard drives
attached. The other segfault problem is I think the candidate you found in
select_not_mounted.c, and is the one I was hitting today.

The story goes... I originally sent this patch to Enrique who replied asking
me to commit the patch as he was busy. Meanwhile Eric Delaunay found, fixed
and committed the select_not_mounted.c bug, so I removed it from the patch
and sent you the remaining libfdisk diffs.
