Short of patching the kernel there isn't anything that can be done at 
this point.  I just ignore the messages.  There was a patch proposed a 
few months ago on lkml to have the kernel ignore partitions beyond the 
end of the device, but it looks like it got merged to only WARN about 
them since there was some concern about the kernel possibly being wrong 
about the device size.  I am attempting to restart conversation on that 
thread now to see what can be done.
