SubjectRe: [PATCH] bsd disklabel detection
Thanks for the patch!
I wondered about

> +#define BSDI_PARTITION 0x9f /* BSDI Partition ID */

You write:

but the use of 0xb7 and 0xb8 for BSDI seems well established.
Is going to 0x9f a recent change? Or are these different systems?
Does the BSDI fdisk have a list of types built-in?

For the time being I suppose we should accept both 0xb7 and 0x9f.
