Re: [Libguestfs] [synnefo-devel] Re: [PATCH 1/1] inspect: Fix a bug in the *BSD root detection



LGTM

Another thing concerning the disklabel partitions is that
list_filesystems() will print both /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda5 as ufs file
systems. I don't know if you care to change this. The fact is that both
are mountable.

P.S. I wish the kernel folks would stop treating the disklabel
partitions as logical partitions. Logical partitions are sequential,
there are no gaps in the numbering. On the other hand disklabel may
have gaps like the MBR partitions. Having defined partitions 'a', 'b'
and 'c' is completely different than having defined partitions 'a', 'c'
and 'd'. The kernel in both cases will show /dev/sda5 and /dev/sda6. I
wonder if they could get convinced to change that...
