Bug#110717: Partitioning error, repartitioned, dinstall does not notice new partitioning afterward


It appears as though this bug is specific to the reiserfs and bf2.4
flavor.  I just tried to reproduce it with a current idepci disk and
could not.  I can reproduce it with current bf2.4 flavor and I
reproduced it with reiserfs back in September.

Is the following ioctl what you had in mind pb?  It doesn't make the
problem go away, unfortunate.  The ioctl always returns -1 for me so
maybe I'm doing something wrong.
