    Good. Now it really does partition reading.
    At some later time we must come back and find out what is
    wrong with hd.c. You call the printk stuff unused, but
    it was used and printed

    partition start 63 size 4096512 type 85 p1
    partition start 4096575 size 15904350 type 85 p2
    partition start 0 size 0 type 0
    partition start 0 size 0 type 0

    Let us compare with your data from earlier:

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/hda1 * 1 365 2931831 83 Linux
    /dev/hda2 366 1245 7068600 5 Extended
    /dev/hda5 366 487 979933+ 83 Linux
    /dev/hda6 1185 1245 489951 82 Linux swap

    Clearly, you have EZDrive installed, the table below is what
    is found in sector 1, the data printed above is what is in
    sector 0. The tables differ - fdisk was used after installation
    of EZDrive.

    I suppose that booting with boot parameter "hda=remap" should work.
    At some later time we must worry about how to get rid of EZDrive.
