    Subject[CFT][PATCH] cleanup of partition code
    	Folks, _please_ help to test this one.  It switches most of
    the fs/partitions/* to use of pagecache, cleans it up and fixes quite
    a few holes in that area.

    It should work in all cases when vanilla tree does. Please,
    try it on different partitioning schemes.

    Things to look for:

    * Odd IDE disks - victims of EZ-Disk, OnCrack, etc.
    * Minix, Solaris, Unixware partitions. Changes were completely
    straightforward, but it needs testing.
    * BSD disklabels. Should work, but more testing is needed.
    * non-x86 variants - Sun disklables, SGI, etc. Need testing.

    One thing that doesn't work yet is support of Acorn partitions -
    I'm switching it to pagecache right now.

    If there's no bug reports it will go into the tree, so _please_
    test it now, not after it's in 2.4.11

    Patch is on It's
    against 2.4.11-pre1. Again, any help with testing is very welcome.
