I just searched arch/sparc, arch/i386, fs, and fs/ufs, and I found no
references to CONFIG_SUN_PARTITION. I saw quite a few CONFIG_SUN tags,
all under the arch/sparc directory, but none having to do with partitions.

Anyway I am thinking I may have been misunderstood. Down the road I
may want to read my Sparc disks on a Sparc, but right now I'd like to
read them on my SCSI PC. I answered yes to all disklabel questions
presented to me in my i486 architecture build of my current 2.0.0
kernel. That's the kernel which can't read the Sparc disks.

So, I am beginning to think this has not been done (?).
