Network block devices don't actually show up in /proc/partitions, but
you have a valid point that the other uses would change. Although, I
think it's a change for the better.

Fair enough. I can live with this discrepancy, although I think nbd is
the only block device driver that has this problem. That's the only
reason I sent the patch along...just trying to make nbd consistent with
all the other device drivers.

Thanks,
Paul
