No need to. This is a difference in how various partitioning tools
calculate the partition boundaries. The boundaries calculated by GNU
Parted are considered more correct [and compatible with other platforms]
than those created by fdisk. Users with old partition tables see tiny
regions of free space between partitions. If this is considered a major
issue, recreate the partition table from scratch some day.
