    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
