Bug#594987: unblock: parted/2.3-2

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: unblock

This fixes an RC bug, #592679.  The only other substantial changes are
making the test suite pass again following sun-revert-disk-flag.patch,
and FreeBSD changes requested by porters: the latter are confined almost
entirely to the UFS code which isn't used much elsewhere, with only a
small amount of detection code added to the DOS and GPT disklabels.

As far as I know, updating the udebs here will be safe, as there are no
API or ABI changes.  CCing -boot for confirmation.

parted (2.3-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix patch ordering: btrfs.patch is for upstream merging, not a symbols
  * Remove limits on loop labels (closes: #592679).  There's no reason to
    impose any particular limit on loop labels, since they just represent a
    single large partition.  Sector counts over 2^32 are needed for large
    RAID arrays.
  * Backport upstream patch to update tests/t4000-sun-raid-type.sh so that
    the test suite passes again.
  * Add support for detection of FreeBSD UFS file systems and creation of
    the partition on DOS and GPT labels (thanks, Aurelien Jarno; closes:
